High Line 3rd presentation

  1. 1. The HighLine User Iteration<br />Nancy<br />Senem<br />Xuan<br />
  2. 2. Preliminary observations: What we observed, and what we wanted to investigate<br />After choosing HighLine as our public space, we investigated the site and decided we wanted to investigate if we could come up with a project to make people communicate with each other on our chosen spot in the park.<br />
  3. 3. The Chosen Spot<br />The Theatre<br />
  4. 4. The Concept<br />Form a way of communication between theatre people and street walkers using a homemade telephone.<br />
  5. 5. Goals: how your project responds to your initial design questions<br />Our project was focused on finding a creative solution about iterating the usage of HighLine park by the public. <br />Our main concern was to find an idea that would work with the park’s characteristics. <br />
  6. 6. The Initial Goal<br />Change how people work the theatre!<br />
  7. 7. Research / Precedents<br />Nina Katchadourian’s “Office Semaphore”<br />In Office Semaphore; The Artist made <br />people put different objects that would<br />express their daily feelings on their office<br />windows and observed how people were <br />feeling below, using a telescope.<br />
  8. 8. First Prototype: The Basic Homemade Telephone : Failure! <br />
  9. 9. The string touching the walls stopped the vibration; therefore the sound wasn’t clear. <br />The string is too long, blocking the traffic.<br />It was both hard to hear the voice and was impossible to see the other person. <br />
  10. 10. Improvement!<br /><ul><li>Hidden in cans, it’s wireless
  11. 11. Making sound clear
  12. 12. People can talk and see each other</li></li></ul><li>1 he walkie talkies are obvious interface in that area, it is easy to call people&apos;s attention.<br />2everybody know how to use it, somebody has the automatic motion to try and talk<br />3when someone tried first, it called up curiosity of people passing by, and more people stepped by and checked it out.<br />4 once they talked with the walkie talkies and get respons from the other side, they were very excited and had strong willings to talk with strangers.<br />problem:<br />sometimes people picked up the phone and say something there is nobody in the other side.<br />For the final; we will be hiding the walkie talkies in cans to make them look like homemade telephones.<br />
  13. 13. Final User Testing: Walkie Talkies worked!<br />
  14. 14. Everything worked fine except for our thunder was stolen at first..<br />
  15. 15. Conclusions<br />
