Technology is becoming more deeply entwined with the spaces in which we live every day. As it does so, the line that divides that which is considered digital, and that which is physical is becoming blurred. As these two spaces merge, the elements that contribute to the way in which we understand to interact within them become harder to define. The work described within this thesis focuses on exploring this space using a formalised methodology that mirrors the design process over a number of iterative and exploratory “Research through Design” projects. This work highlights and discusses a number of key themes that reoccur throughout these projects, and then augments an established interaction design framework to incorporate these themes. Finally, reflections on this formalised design process, and the future of this hybrid space are discussed.
