|Authors||Eshraghian, F., Hafezieh, N. and Harwood, S.|
This paper aims to explore the importance of designer’s perception of the user’s/practitioner’s habitus (institutional context) and how this perception misalignment with the user’s habitus (institutional context) in the case of information artefacts (configurational in nature) brings forth collective affordances and introduces new forms of self-awareness to potential interruptions. Our discussion introduces two theoretical contributions. First, by exploring the specialised practices related to information artefacts in particular institutional context of Iran, we highlight the role of the designer’s perception of the user’s/practitioner’s institutional context in appropriating these artefacts and actualising ‘collective affordances’. Second, by looking at the appropriation processes of these configurational information artefacts, we describe how the misalignment of this perception with that of the user’s/practitioner’s institutional context initiate the new forms of self-awareness among practitioners.
