  1. 1. Class Agenda • 30 min: What did you learn in the last week? • 20 min: Considering Resolution • 10 Min: Break to Prep for Critique • 70 min: Speed Dating Critique • 5 min: Homework
  2. 2. What did you learn in the last week? Take a minute to reflect on the one thing above all others that you learned 2
  3. 3. How was focusing on increasing fidelity w/o increasing resolution?
  4. 4. Consider Resolution
  5. 5. Resolution is not the same as Fidelity
  6. 6. Fidelity is the degree of a solution’s definition present in the presentation of a deliverable (i.e How much you have figured out at this point?) • A napkin sketch is low fidelity • A engineering blueprint is high fidelity Resolution is the degree to which the eventual medium is represented in the presentation of a deliverable (i.e How “real” does it seem?) • An engineering blueprint is low resolution • A built building is high resolution

  15. 15. Lessons in Resolution
  16. 16. When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail Don’t get stuck in your comfort zone. Most people are either Fidelity (what) or Resolution (how) people. For individual work, makers have to do both.
  17. 17. Fake it till you make it There are reasons to up the resolution before true fidelity is gained. Knowing you are doing it and having reason to is the key.
  18. 18. Beware of the Uncanny Valley of deliverables Careful when “faking it” in research settings, it can change the nature of the feedback dramatically.
  19. 19. Challenge: For the next week, try focusing on increasing the resolution of something you have already started (i.e Pick something and make it seem more real using the magic of design)
  20. 20. Break 20
