Some images from our WEEK 1 Negative Space group brainstorm. This quick project asked each person to consider how they commuted every day, and find the physical, longitudinal and mental "negative space" in that experience. Then, each person nominated an activity they absolutely loved, and the Design Challenge was to integrate the essence of that activity into the negative space of a commute. First individually, then as a group. Interestingly - especially considering that the driver aids make driver concentration less and less essential and the driverless car has an imminent launch date - many of the projects were car-based although there was also a bus that offered a sense of community to the regular crowd with projected coupons and crowd-sourcing projects, and a bike that used sensors to send a translation of its daily motion as artwork to the computer of the user and their friends.
Below are the car-based projects including devices around the driver to make music, record music and share with fellow drivers and a wider global audience, and an immersive "ocean swim" experience that includes projectors, sea spray, scents and possibly a UV light.....
a great start to 2015!
