Leggett and Dyson are non-indigenous Australians interested in the potential of designing new media applications that are sensitive to and productive for indigenous peoples. Their research has focussed on development of new media systems that reflect indigenous world-views, particularly with relation to established knowledge-sharing protocols. They demonstrate that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to culturally-specific knowledge systems, but questions of control and governance are critical. A key area for further exploration is a praxis of design framed to enable culturally-specific philosophies of representation that lead into new interface paradigms.
