Abstract or Description

With the advent of interactive digital media, people are
no longer simply ‘users’. They actively shift between
various roles: author, collaborator, and even performer.
We coin the term “user in flux” to problematize static
definitions of “the user” and highlight how people’s
roles and practices switch and evolve when engaged in
such interactions. Drawing on participatory practices
and seeking inspiration from interactive artists, this
workshop explores the ”user in flux” with an aim to
establish directions and approaches that can revitalize
the HCI community’s understanding of the user and
inform the design of technologies used for interacting
with digital media, and promote a new research
agenda.
