Barney Townsend’s Expression of Interest

I am relatively new to Cybernetics, but I am intrigued by the relevance of it as a theory for design, and for the research that I am doing. In particular, I am interested by conversation theory, and the encouragement of conversation between designers and consumers in order to mutually participate in the process of design. The conference focus on circular causality between acting and understanding is pertinent not only to my own processes of learning and approach to research, but also specifically to my research topic, in the differences in approach between the professional and the amateur, operating at different stages of the acting-learning-understanding continuum.
