This resulted in multiple perspectives on SR-RFID that were furtherinvestigated by the group of designers and researchers.In the process of research by design conducted in Touch, each individualdesign process conducted may be seen as part of a dialectic between researchand designing. The design brief was devised to orient design efforts towardareas of SR-RFID deemed interesting by the collaborative design group. Oneexample of such interest was the use of multiple fields, which were exploredin the design of the Orooni table. In carrying out the design process, newknowledge about SR-RFID was developed within the design group. The newknowledge was analysed, described and shared within the group. The newknowledge was then used in the developing of fresh design briefs directedtoward new interest areas uncovered during the previous research and designprocess.I was part of carrying out the circle out four times with different means ofprototyping in the project. Continuously during these steps the perspective onSR-RFID changed dramatically. Table 3.1 shows how the research focus onSR-RFID in the study changed reflexively throughout the project. It startedwith a focus on interfaces and ended with a focus on forms.Research focusInterfaces on SR-RFIDenabledphonesRFID-driven tangibleinteractionSR-RFID as generalinput mechanismNear-field material andformsTable 3.1. Layers of the research focus on SR-RFIDThe top three focuses show a gradual reduction in research scope. However,the bottom item shows a more significant shift in focus from interactionspecificphenomena to a general design-oriented form perspective. It is thelatter focus that is further described in Chapter 5 of this thesis.The evolution of research focus in my study is a testament to the reflexivenature of the process of research by design actively carried out in this study.60
