Abstract

The ability to be or to create ‘cool’ is universally desirable, for individuals wishing to impress their peers and multinational corporations attempting to gain market share alike. To achieve cool, however, is as challenging as it is desirable; often fleeting, unexpected, uncontrolled and seemingly mysterious. This work builds upon previous work by the authors in understanding and designing for cool. Current literature and work on cool predominantly focuses on specific demographics of society without exploring its broader application. This workshop aims to explore and discuss the notion of cool and how it crosses the boundaries of continents, cultures and communities. This workshop aims to gather a deeper understanding of the different facets and contexts of cool, and whether cool as a concept can be globally defined.
