Abstract: This Ph.D. thesis proposes to follow a design and implementation process of an interactive artifact. It explores the agency of designers, users and devices interacting together and forming processes that go beyond the production of a finished object. It also shows how the design of interactive artifacts is not only the development of a technology but also the configuration of a context of use t where social processes among humans and non-humans, play a decisive role. The proposed vision of co-design opens a critical view at how we currently understand design processes and stakeholders. I argue that in interactive design the experience of users include the experience of the designers and that the non-human components play also a significative role in how thee artifact becomes. Methodologically, this PhD dissertation reveals how the designer needs to make and shape technology, not only observe and describe, when he experiments with different ethnographic methods to understand the world.
