Extended Reference list for Thinking with Things: Landscapes, Connections, Performances as modes of Building Shared Understanding

Workshop participants in Tangible Thinking at RSD8

To accompany the paper:

Lockton, D., Forlano, L., Fass, J., Brawley, L. (2020). ‘Thinking with Things: Landscapes, Connections and Performances as Modes of Building Shared Understanding’. IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications, forthcoming

which was restricted to just 20 references in the paper itself, we offer this extended set of references and further reading which was compiled by the four authors. It is of course incomplete, and in time we hope to expand this further.

A sibling paper about the same workshops, examining the methods from a systemic design perspective
