Ehn, Pelle. (2011). “Design Things: Drawing Things Together and Making Things Public”, TECNOSCIENZA Italian Journal of Science & Technology Studies Volume 2(1) pp. 31-52.

SUMMARY – This assemblage is based on a talk Pelle Ehn gave at the EASST010 conference in Trento, Italy, September 3, 2010. It is composed of several kinds of materials. The ground structure is formed by the slides Ehn showed at that occasion. These slides are commented in three different ways. Firstly by excerpts from the talk, secondly by comments added now when this assemblage is put together, and finally quotes from “Design Things”, the book manuscript around which the talk circulated.
