Abstract

The present work explores theoretical threads which may be used to inform the design of interactive systems that exhibit digital materiality. The research is motivated by current thinking on sociomateriality and distributed organizing as populated in different scholarships. From the range of conceptual foundations, the paper picks on the concept of imbrication and advances a conceptual scaffold for imbricating services. A design showcase is used to briefly illustrate how imbrications of services combined with digital 'tells' and online remains can improve upon the digital materiality of certain family practices such as vacation planning.
