• Today was the first class of Interaction design and first I thought that we will going to learn abut the definition of Interaction design but what we learn was the very basics of what actually we mean be interaction design in our daily life.
  • Sir asked the questions like — how the communication start?, at what point we start communication with ourselves?
  • To which we didn't know the answer first but after the discussion we come to know that Acknowledgement is the first thing from which we start our conversation by saying hi or good morning to each other. I know its very basics but at that time we were not able to understand this.
  • Then he told us that for the first time we start communication with ourselves is when we start differentiating between the different sensations we have like Pain, hunger etc. We start communicating to ourselves when we start feeling ourselves, when we see us physically into the mirror and feel that we are alive and we have this body.
  • These questions were easy but I was not able to find the answers because may be I have never saw the things in that way, these questions really change the perspective of how I was seeing or observing the things around me. These two questions give birth to many more questions like- do we really know ourselves better? How do we get our identity? and many more.
  • Interaction is not just what I think it was, it has many other meanings and for every person interaction can be different. They way they interact can be different.
  • We watch the two clips on YouTube which were funny but also informative at the same time. We talk about the Bauhaus school (1913–93)and Ulm school of design(1953–68). The major difference between these two schools were that Bauhaus was talking about only skills where as Ulm says that we can have both thinking as well as skills together and it brings the concept of Semiotics.
  • We study the 10 principles of design by Dieter Rams. He clearly defines all those 10 principles and says that if a design follow these rules then it will be a good design.
  • book to read- India Report , movies to watch- Helvetica and Rams
  • points which I really like- ‘ Beauty is the function of it’ and Classy means the function of it, it does its job properly or not? (said by sir)
