Undesigned for: re-thinking interaciton through game-play design

1,010

Published on

This workshop provides a game session for training participants in using alternatively methods for ideas generations in the design area of activities and functions permitted by physical interfaces. Instead of fixed procedure of design thinking we propose models useful to criticize existing artefacts and to structure the intuitions in a collaborative context. In this way Game-Play Design approach will support the design practice in a variety of ways, e.g. by facilitating lateral thinking training methods, offering tools appropriate to work by context techniques, investigating potential interfaces development, or by providing opportunities for collaborative design exploration and new concepts generation.
Persons interested in participating should assume the role of gamers in predicting collaboratively novel uses of well-known objects placed in their unrelated scenarios. A potential outcome is to acquire a groundwork building method for managing and analyzing real-world scenarios of interaction with objects and environments. A further goal is to experiment unusual game design situations fruitful to stimulate the concepts generation using game materials furnished to support the overcoming of conditioning processes.
The training in self-conscious design by game-play method could bring benefits to several design fields, such as service, urban, interaction and product design. In this perspective the workshop aims to suggest a subversive operation by anticipating the user needs without restrictions. The collaborative brainstorming method is intended to open design dialogues by removing the limits and conventions of the creative thinking.

  18. 18. Who are you? • Dress your player hat • Act your role • Feel your game context as your real surrounding • Subvert the well-known
  19. 19. Game-Play session 45 minutes • Rethink relationship (assembling, reuse, recycle) • Be intentionally visionary (replace habit with curiosity) • Use the “formula”: What happens if I do ... ? • Don’t mind constrains (jump over well-know boxes) • Talk, listen, sketch The result has to be witty and thought provoking!
  20. 20. What are the main actions to be accomplished when participating in a workshop ?
  21. 21. process content decision on process / content ! Team dynamic – has an impact on the flow experience Flow: the state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else matter; the experience itself is so enjoyable that people will do it even at great cost for the sheer sake of doing it. (Csikszentmihalyi, 1992, 2002) Kick-off Ideas generation Concept definition Presentation
  22. 22. * Read and discuss the brief with the group comparing the different interpretations. *! Understand the different perspectives (disciplinary, cultural) *! Define the motivations (what the different members of the group expect from the workshop) and goals (what they want to achieve). Divide tasks according to the skills. ! Expect to encounter disagreements. Turn potential conflicts into creative opportunities. 1.Organize the team
  23. 23. ° Idea generation – outline the qualities and features of the concept. Distinguish between the core and marginal attributes – establish priorities. °*! Use dialog, rather than debate. Visualize ideas using written lists and drawings. Take preliminary decisions. ° Integrate the attributes (tangible – intangible) and define form / function relation. ° Stabilize the description of the concept, name, keywords. 2. Let’s play !
  24. 24. * Plan the presentation. Designate the person to present or divide the arguments to be presented among the members of the group. ° Explain the thought process; the issues to be addressed by the concept (where you started from) and the outcome (where you arrived). 3. Presentation
  25. 25. “Dialog is not only possible, but perhaps enlivened when people don’t share meaning. What we share is not as interesting as what we don’t share.” C. Bender Bakhtinitan perspectives on “everyday life” sociology.
