Now that computers are no longer merely a means to do our job but help us to pursue our lives, one could question the appropriateness of functionality and efficiency as the main guiding principles for design. User experience and aesthetics of interaction are becoming increasingly paramount. But what makes for aesthetic of interaction and how to design for it? In the module "Aesthetics of Interaction" we used a variety of methods to discuss, experience and analyse the concept of aesthetics of interaction in depth. In this extended abstract we elucidate the methods used, i.e., movies, interaction maps, interaction mechanisms, prototypes and silent presentations, including the rationale behind them.
