Kwyjibos Kwyjibos Presentation Transcript

  • Katherine  Lee   MFADT  Candidate  2010   May  4,  2010  
  • In  a  world  where  customization  is  increasingly   used  as  a  weapon  to  combat  lack  of   uniqueness  in  mass-­‐produced  products,   customized  items  themselves  risk  losing   personal  meaning  and  becoming   indistinguishable  from  one  another.    
  • The  Kwyjibos  Lab  is  a  web  application  that   allows  users  to  design  and  order  their  own  plush   creatures               (                      ).   This  project  is  an  exploration  into  how  the   customization  process  can  be  designed  to   inspire  users  to  create  meaningful  objects  they   have  a  personal  connection  with.  
  • How  can  I  enable  mass  customization  while   maintaining  the  aesthetic  concerns  of  the  co-­‐ designers  at  each  step?  
  • user  experience    [  comfort  +  familiarity  +  playfulness  +  nostalgia  ]   ownership  of  customized  object    [  user-­‐generated  narrative  ]  
  • The  Kwyjibos  Lab  achieves  the  goal  of  fostering   user-­‐generated  narrative,  but  there  is  room  to   explore  more  deeply     The  designer  toy  consumer  depends  on  aesthetic   of  designer/artist  who  creates  it   How  much  does  my  own  aesthetic  factor  into   kwyjibos?
