Dead-Until-Touched: How Digital Icons Can Transform the Way We Interact With Information

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This paper challenges the way we currently use and interact with information
through digital icons and static metaphors. The latest computer and
mobile devices’ graphical user interfaces need to be reevaluated in order to
support the paradigm shift from static and local to mobile and cloud-based interactions. Furthermore this paper questions the lingering of static icons used in
computers, mobile and tablet interfaces. The paper also presents concrete suggestions on how expanding the functionality of digital icons can better afford
how users interact with information.
