    2. 2. Intro • “Advise Me” is a satirical video series exploring American morality and ideas of morality shift via Advice Giving.
    3. 3. Domains Morality Advice giving Satire Video
    4. 4. Design Questions/ Audience • Is the advisor actually capable of giving useful advice or are they merely prescribing their own morality? • Has advice changed in the last 60 years? • What does it say about people who seek advice from strangers? • Audience: Advice seekers
    5. 5. Precedence • Advice Columns: • Satirical Advice Dan Savage, Dear Column: Abby, Ann Landers, Mrs. Mills Solves all of Ask Prudence, Since your Problems you Asked • Satire via video: Autotune the News

    7. 7. Prototype 1 • Interactive, sound and sensor triggered video installation. • Social education films were interchangeable with the Advisor’s video clips. • Videos were randomized such that the Advisor never “heard” the actual request.
    8. 8. Prototype 2 • The persona was created for the Advisor. • The sound trigger was refined and placed after the proximity sensor. The Advisor asked for the user’s question directly.
    9. 9. Prototype 3 • Removed interactivity in favor of developing the persona and expanding the number of social education films that I can work with.
