Organizing Our Collected Data
This week we were able to conduct a Brainstorm Workshop with our clients to gain a better understanding of their vision for the museum. We also sorted through some of the data we got from our visit to Lisbon. Finally, we started preparing for a class presentation.
This week, we conducted a brainstorm workshop with our clients. We directed them through our activities of card sorting and brainstorming with constraints. This activity helped us understand their viewpoints more and also helped them communicate some of their ideas with us.
Card Sorting The Museum Experience
- Mixed abstract with concrete
- Talked through differences
Brainstorming with Constraints: the Opposite
- The museum shouldn’t only show past and present, should also show future of energy
- only one child in a group learning something new
Brainstorming with Constraints: No Physical Building
- Bring a kit with items for students to interact with and touch
- Bring students on a tour on a working powerplant (wind farm, levadas)
Brainstorming with Constraints: Communicate with Someone Who Doesn’t Speak Your Language
- Show a cause and effect
- Play with showing emotion
Last week, we had made a trip to Lisbon and visited a set of museums to get some inspiration and also see the full experiences of other museum experiences. We printed out pictures of the many exhibits that we visited and graphically represented them on a scale of interactiveness and number of users the exhibit was intended for.
For the next week, we started planning for our informal presentations with our Capstone class. We decided that we wanted to go with the theme of a museum experience and wanted to put up each section of our research as a separate sort of exhibit.
