Interface ecology addresses how to generate new knowledge by combining methods and their disciplines. Theory and practice are connected.
Interface ecologies are socio-technical border zones that juxtapose disparate systems on many levels. Interface border zones bring people, activities, codes, components, and systems into contact. They are characterized by the relationships that they enable and prohibit. The development of hybrid forms can be catalyzed (or prevented). The need to understand and resolve differences can function as a transformative mechanism that drives innovation (or as barrier).
