Design for Civic Engagement

Itinerant Probes

Collaborating with researchers at Intel Labs and Professor Daniela Rosner of the Tactile and Tactical Design Lab at UW, our team applied the Design as Inquiry research method to develop new ways of accessing the sensory imaginations of city-dwellers, focusing on public stairwells in Seattle. Working with a team of prototypers each week, Mei, Wanlin and I performed over 50 intercept interviews in public spaces in the Seattle area.
