Sketching with time

This is the first time we have instructed students to use stop motion, so the project was partly an experiment in itself. In addition we wanted to find out more about the potentials and challenges of using stop motion for prototyping navimation. Sketching with time: student projects | Navimation Research

Designing with video

Digital video for user-centred co-design is an emerging field of design, gaining increasing interest in both industry and academia. It merges the traditions of design ethnography, participatory design, interaction analysis, scenario-based design, and usability studies into an integrated approach, which values the designer’s capacity to study and change the world creatively. Designing with video, focusing the… Continue reading Designing with video

Designing with moving images

A significant challenge in interaction design practice is to express, shape and communicate the behavior of an intended design. Time-based media such as video can be a good choice for that purpose. This compendium presents a number of approaches to video as an expressive medium for interaction design. Designing with moving images

The City is A Battlesuit For Surviving the Future

There are good reasons why science fiction ideas percolate through culture like background radiation, instead of being baldly trotted out front and center. Archigram’s sci-fi flavored architecture-fiction was never commercially practical, it wasn’t meant to be, but it was usefully provocative: while pretending to be all zap-pow, pop-art and spacey, Archigram was chopping the future’s… Continue reading The City is A Battlesuit For Surviving the Future

Virtual video prototyping

Computing power is an integrated part of our physical environment, and since our physical environment is three-dimensional, the virtual studio technology, with its unique potential for visualizing digital 3D objects and environments along with physical objects, offers an obvious path to pursue in order to envision future usage scenarios in the domain of pervasive computing.… Continue reading Virtual video prototyping

The new directions that I am looking at revolve around the idea of simulation. My last post looked at how construction and fabrication technologies are used to simulate the elements of building construction and use. In entertainment design the elements of space are a means to a different end – the simulation of experience. As… Continue reading Untitled

The technique has clearly some disadvantages – it is for example hard to make subtle movements and deal with details and many elements at the same time. However, it seems especially suited for 3D motion sketching, since this often requires a lot of time and skills to do on a computer. Sketching in time |… Continue reading Untitled
