Making Theory Come Alive through Practice-based Design Research

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalPaperResearch


The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how practice-based design research is able not only to challenge, but also to push toward further development of some of the basic assumpstions in emotion theories as used within design research. In so doing, we wish to increase knolwedge on a central epistemological question for design research, namely how practice-based design research can be a vehicle for the construction of new theory for design research.
