Abstract

An argument for the use of the concept of Technological Frame by Bijker to understand the constructionist and semiotic power dynamics of different groups in participatory design is presented. This is illustrated with case study of design in rural Kenya. It is shown how dominant groups' frames can construct meanings of design decisions in terms of whether they are appropriate or not. The political leverage of the scripts embedded in artefacts used in the process of design is also explained from a semiotic perspective.
