First Project

I am interested in the conflicting between the law enforcement officers and suspects, everyone has personal perspective towards one specific event, from officers view, suspects’ view, spectators, and the story might be changed by narrator’s emotion, The paper prototype will be about a conflicting event between the officer and suspects and also includes several factors which might influence the outcome of the event and the POV of others (spectators and society), users might play different roles in the event with limited clues or factors, and the results would be a documentary of users’ reaction, which would demonstrate the relationship among the limited factors, the role, and the reaction. The purpose of this project would be helpful of understanding the situation from different perspective.

 

Second Project

Mobile phones are a convenient way to connect with our loved ones, friends and family. How can we switch the perspectives of individuals based on the conversations we hold privately with the people who matter most to us? We explored a intimate narrative through the exchanging of words we communicate everyday.

The goal of this prototype is to invite users to put on a new perspective on their mobile phones. We selected 4 people who come from diverse backgrounds and documented their every day conversations through phone calls and text messages.

Third Project

We are doing an immersive experience project, audiences switch to object’s perspective by touching each one of them, based on the information what they will see through objects’ perspective, audiences will figure out the truth behind a murder case.

We chose the concept of changing perspective, because we want the audiences feel how the changing perspective effects our assumptions. People always believe what they want to believe, in our project, we display 4 physical objects on the desk, each one of them will offer piece of information, audiences will reorganize those information piece and figure out what was happening, it is like this murder case, no one will get all the evidences, we are keeping approaching the truth, it is impossible for us to totally reveal the truth. The truth is always different from what they believe somehow.

The goal of the project is to find the person who killed David. There are 4 suspects that police discovered that possibly relates to the murder of David and players/users have to figure out which suspect killed him.

Our mechanic is to give clues (but not enough information) to the players to figure out what happened.

1. Prototype 1

Concept prototype on shifting perspective

For the first prototype on shifting perspective I came up with an activity in which all participants describe a historical event, or one that they would all be familiar with, in three words. Then they share the words and see if anyone wrote descriptions that surprised them or that they didn’t agree with. The activity was meant to explore the subjective ways we perceive and describe the same event. I also was intending to make obvious how word choice reflects our personal perspective on a topic.

Scenario:
A question asking to describe a collective event that all the players would be familiar with is asked, for example “Describe 9/11”. Then everyone participating must write a three word description of the event on a piece of paper, which they share with the group. The players identify which words they agree with and which they would not use to describe the event and why.

Our goal for this project was to come up with a game that would facilitate understanding of each other’s points of view and give the other person “the benefit of the doubt” when it comes to accusatory situations. It takes the form of a card game that relies on role-playing. This prototype went through many iterations that began as a purely roleplaying experience to a BS based version, to an Apples to Apples version.

Points of View [Ping][Karen][Dana]

Goal & Summary

The intention of our game is to share different perspectives about collective values and ideas amongst a group of people playing the game. It takes the form of a card game and photography project. The goal is to promote creative thinking, reflection about important values, and discussion around these topics by prompting the promotion of different points of view.

Project 1 – Data Homelessness

2

Goal and Summary

According to analyses of data from NSHAPCxiv: Over 80% of the homeless have experienced lifetime alcohol and/or drug problems. Can public real-time data about the homeless assist in monitoring the health and statistics of the vagabonds, and at the same time gain the empathy of the public?

The goal of this activity is to ferment and facilitate conversation about the advantages and disadvantages that shape us, that shapes others, and that we carry through the world just by being ourselves. Through this, the hope is that people will become more aware of their privileges (and the privileges of others) and form new perspectives by learning how others operate and function in society.
