Staying open to interpretation: engaging multiple meanings in design and evaluation
This paper lays out the contours of the new space opened by a focus on multiple interpretations, which may more fully address the complexity, dynamics and interplay of user, system, and designer interpretation.

This analysis traces how cultural probes have been adopted and adapted by the HCI community, revealing important underlying issues in HCI, suggesting underacknowledged disagreements about valid interpretation and the relationship between methods and their underlying methodology.
Making by making strange: Defamiliarization and the design of domestic technologies
This article argues that because the home is so familiar, it is necessary to make it strange, or defamiliarize it, in order to open its design space, and suggests a broad set of challenges and strategies for design in the home.
Reflective design combines analysis of the ways in which technologies reflect and perpetuate unconscious cultural assumptions, with design, building, and evaluation of new computing devices that reflect alternative possibilities.
