Abstract  Through the course of this research I looked at the mode of my practice considering the collaborative as an important instrument in the way I work as well as the nature of the work produced through this practice driven by contextual concerns and negotiated by a variety of design tools informing both my practice and my teaching. In my practice, this collaborative mode concerns the notion of the embedded practice as part of a wider interactive network of practices. In my teaching, this concerns the notion of the social learner, investigating modes of interactive learning communities. In both practice and teaching the contextual is explored in terms of emplacement or place making referring to ideas described by Marc Auge. As I will address in the writing of my catalogue, the parameters used in the negotiation of contextual designs changed as the actual location of my practice changed resulting in the production of different tools by which the design is explored.
With this research, exploring the mode, nature and tools of my practice I aimed to develop an understanding of my practice in order to further develop the organizational principles governing this practice to accommodate possible overlaps between practice and teaching. As a conclusion to this research I will present InsideOpen, a web tool I developed, complementing my current practice and teaching to offset a trajectory where I can substantiate the idea of collaborative modes of practice in both practice and teaching.
