Yin Aiwen – Urbanizing the digital (Eng)


With the User-Centered Design that assumes its users are always alone and want to be alone with the product, the current generation of digital space is built for alienation. Instead of condemning one particular type of software after another, Aiwen proposes that we need a new generation of design tools that programs solidarity from the very beginning.

In 2018, Aiwen published an essay/manifesto named ‘Urbanizing the digital: Call for action’. In this manifesto, she proposes a collective effort to spatialize cyberspace and explore the urbanism thereof, as a way to unionize users and affirm user rights in the immaterial space.
