From our research we created this digital prototype of the work which is an interaction design piece that addressed the organization need for artistic expression and community engagement within the space
This geo-installation is an art installation that allows people coming into the space to respond to the prompt on the white board and write down their thoughts on a triangular magnet, and place them on the metal structure, as well as comment on others.
Each week we had to conduct research in person with the organization and received feedback that we then incorporated into user experience maps, personas, and graphic design mockups. We also conducted weekly meetings with the organization where we discussed our findings and collaborated to come up with a more fitting solutions.
We iterated from our design goals by identifying the constraints and opportunities from our research, where we came up with several different solutions, that addressed these topics.
We then got feedback through conducting an online workshop until we narrowed it down to the concept of an interactive installation that was geared to engage visitors and employees more within the space.
Some challenges faced were being able to narrow down all this research into one tangible issue that we could design to focus in on one interaction.
How we overcame this was through team ideation workshops and discussions to keep narrowing down our idea until we found the best one.
