Have a brief experience and document it.
In this quick exercise, you will form teams of three (3) and practice observing and documenting an experience. In your teams, identify one person that will undergo an experience using the prompts below (or something similar). The other two members of the team are responsible for observing the experience to the best of their ability and documenting its parts in usable way. Conduct this experiment within 45 minutes.
When you are done, return to the studio and we will go through the process of unpacking the experience in order to create a rough experience map.
Once you have a rough, analog map, you will practice translating it into a digital format. Between Wednesday and Friday’s class sessions, you will move your map onto the computer and bring it in for a group discussion. This should be a divergent process. Explore different document sizes, colors, type sizes, etc to see what does and doesn’t work. Bring printed drafts on Friday, when we will learn from each other’s explorations.
At the end of this exercise, you will be able to:
Draft of a map (printed)
This exercise will not be graded. We are doing it to help ease you into experience mapping. The more effort you put into this exercise, the easier it will be for you to jump into the first assignment.
