Abstract

This paper describes an experiment in ‘contextual transposition’, a mobile, inventive method developed from conversations between the authors during an interdisciplinary research ‘sprint’, where our interests in alternative mobilities and ‘designing’ socially just futures generated productive creative friction. The idea of ‘hitching a ride’ in automobility systems was mobilised and we embarked on a journey of ‘contextual transposition’. Could one hitchhike in other contexts? To explore this question, we designed an experiment. In this paper we describe it and discuss how we have used contextual transposition as a method for design research.
