Abstract

Interaction is one of many possible relations between humans and technologies. Mediation theory can help designers to anticipate the impact of a product on human practices and experiences. Another approach to human-technology relations has a dialectical nature in the sense that it sees an opposition, rather than a continuity between humans and technologies. The concept of technological mediation can be helpful in investigating this hybrid character of human-technology relations.
