Title: adversarial design → adversarial interfaces; a refresh
Date: 2018/11
Writing: in progress
Status: draft
Adversarial design is design that does the work of agonism. Agonism is a political theory that emphasizes the potentially positive aspects of certain forms of political conflict. Adversarial interfaces do the work of agonism in multiple ways: it expresses bias and divisive positions; it provides opportunities to participate in disputes over values, believes and desires; and it models alternate socio-material configurations that demonstrate possible futures.

&lt;p&gt;I'm collecting examples of how websites are informing their visitors of the use of cookies. I find this to be an interesting subject matter because &lt;span class="subject"&gt;cookies&lt;/span&gt; are a technical application hidden in the background of the browser. Needless to say that they are potentially detrimental, so the passing of the cookie law is a great information move.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;When the law was passed in 2011, it's fair to guess that cookie knowledge was not widesfigcaptionad. 6 years later, it's hard to tell if the regulation has had an effect on people's behaviour towards cookies, but it's interesting to note how initial implemetations onto websites were at least attempting compliance, whereas nowadays they barely get a list item in a website's footer.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The attempt to make interface easier by grounding it with skeuomorphism is deeply confusing to me. I understand these imitations in interface as enormous problems in communication. If the interface is to indicate to the user how the application is to be used, then it is disenchanting to think about why the decorative skeuws were ever necessary. Imitating leather textures for a calendar application says to me that the software maker really could not trust me in understanding the words that the interface was displaying. I can not be trusted with my idea of what a virtual calendar is, it best have some leather around the edges so that I don't loose track of what it was intended for. Further, the use of a wood texture and a library shelf layout in a reader app can bring me to understand an other set of connected assumptions. For example the idea that I must keep all of my books, magazines and documents in the same place. That I have the luxury of displaying all of my books front covers, that for me to find my books amongst each other, they must have covers that are singular or legible enough to be identifiable, that readable mediums do not deserve sub classifications, or that books are finished objects, they meant to be read only, not manipulated, annotated, scribbled in, photocopied or torn apart.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img alt="" src="../images/ibooks111.jpg"/&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;All in all, the use of skeuomorphism iterates the power dynamic and hierarchic structure that exists in application type software, while constantly pushing the end user further down the process line. At my most bitter, I see this as an insults the user's cognitive ability, by assuming she/he is unable to conceive what an application may do. It sets boundaries for function by widening the gap in understanding that digital handling can be viewed as crafts of abstraction. It talks to the user assuming that the simplest scenario is the best for all, ignoring any desire for more complexity or more granularity in options and processes. I find skeuomorphism to be revealing because when taken apart, it shows that the user is understood by the vendor as someone that isn't capable of abstract thought.&lt;/p&gt;
