let’s say hello
“the players mill about the room.
At some point the workshop leader
asks them all the greet each other
by shaking hands.
Greet one person and move on,
greet another and so on…
then endow each of the greetings
with an element…”
—learnImprov.com
greet everyone like you are:
1   robinson crusoe
2   a world-famous chef
3   in love
4   sean connery
5   a carrot
6   tipsy
7   a waiter/waitress
8   hAl 9000
9   a bowling ball
15–20 seconds each
this is a
workshop about
prototyping
using low-fi tools
Paper, markers, tape
the actions of our bodies
the stories that we tell
the artifacts we create
And our imaginations
for design improv
our inspiration is the medium of improv,
which is rooted in dynamic, physical
interaction between people*




* so forget Adobe cs5, the Internet, all that falderal
improv
is practice
for creative
collaboration
“…I tend to focus on the definition
 of structures for improvisation,
 simplicity in complexity
 and freedom of will.
“without rules, you’ve got no
 target for which to aim for.
 without flexibility, you haven’t
 the freedom to redefine the target.”
 —duane king, BBdk & founder of thinkingforaliving.org

so, let’s improvise!
pick a challenge:
Sense of smell
                    1
Sense of hearing
                    2
Proprioception
                    3
you picked:

Touch Screen of Deaf Rock
teams of 3–4 people         2
create a novel exhibit experience at your local
children’s museum that lets deaf people feel
different kinds of music.
the exhibit should also accommodate hearing children and
parents who want understand what it’s like to experience
different kinds of music physically, not just aurally. what music
would you want to share with these audiences? how would
you prompt deaf children to interact with the exhibit?

15 minutes to ideate in groups
15 minutes to prototype the exhibit At sIZe
15 minutes to role-play walking through the exhibit & refine
Only 1 minute to present your exhibit idea to everyone


 Touch Screen of Deaf Rock
 teams of 3–4 people                                                2
you picked:


TechnoYoga
teams of 4–5 people   3
You’ve been tasked with creating an application
that wirelessly communicates with your yoga mat
and tracks what poses you’ve attempted over the
course of your daily and monthly practice.
design this application’s interaction model and the mat that
would go along with it. walk us through how you would interact
with the mat and/or application over a session and afterwards.

15 minutes to ideate in groups
15 minutes to prototype the application and mat At sIZe
15 minutes to role-play using the application and mat & refine
Only 1 minute to present your idea to everyone



 TechnoYoga
 teams of 4–5 people                                             3
let’s debrief
what did each group discover as they designed?
what would you change for next time?
on a future project, would you do this at work?
“Prototyping is practice for people
                                                           who design and who make things…
                                                           it’s a design philosophy.
                                                           when you prototype, you allow
                                                           your design, product, or service
                                                           to practice being itself.
                                                           And as its maker, you learn more
                                                           about your designs in this way then
                                                           you every could in any other way…”
                                                           —dave Gray, Xplane, from Prototyping:
