The paper aims to represent a response to the invited paper by Ellen Christiansen: “From ethics of the eye to ethics of the hand in participatory design and development of digital technologies”.
The response takes departure in Christiansen's view points regarding dialogue-oriented collaborative prototyping as a mean to address values in design.
The response points to the limitations of Christiansen's approach in claiming that dialogue cannot by itself ensure integration of ethics into the practice of design.
The response addresses methodological issues related to ethical design and stresses the importance of a pro-active design approach in order to implement values in design.
