IBM workshop: Food and Recipe App

  Today we worked with IBM team using Design Thinking and Human-Centred Design methods to design an App about food and recipe. The workshop began with building personae, and our class were grouped into 4 team. Our group were thinking about a person who named Lin and she is 25 years old. She is a banker which job are about finance, she’s busy and very good at data analyses and math. Because of her role, it is no time to find a boyfriend into her life. Then we created a empathy map in order to list ideas of what… More

Workshop with Georgina Voss

Today we receive our brief of unit 2.1: Speculative Design. And also have a workshop with Georgina Voss. Our class are grouped into 4 teams to work 4 different topics. Those topics were all about hypothesis near future. The topics make us understanding the ideas about Speculative Design. Our topic is if toothpaste become expensive in the future, what will happen? Our idea is designing a Digital Emoji Mask. Because toothpaste are super expensive, so we are wondering that will effect human behaviors, for example, poor people will not brush their teeth anymore in order to save their money, so… More

How to connect our patterns and audience?

So we designed these moving and changing patterns, in order to reinterpreting WM’s patterns with contemporary technology and aesthetics. And as we said before, our main idea is “The more people can access the art, the stronger the art will become.” So once audience come into this space, they will make some sounds and noises by treading the floor, and then these sounds will connect to our MAX system which can control the patterns.

How the masses create art?

  This is a prime example of no people no art. Before the stomping it was nothing more than a floor. http://xueyingli.int-des.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/379056941.mp4       Ref: http://www.lucassimoes.com.br/recalque-diferencial… More

William Morris and his paradox

The more people can access the art, the stronger the art will become. This installation will close the gap between William Morris’ theories and his art. As a man who believed so strongly in Socialism and the accessibility of art for the masses, the expensive production of his art never laddered up to his ideas. In this piece the art cannot exist without the masses, the more people to interact in the space, the stronger the piece will become. We will design an echo chamber, which is dark room with three-sided mirrors and one side of the projector. More
