í Assignment 4: Process Book

You will need to create a process book for either the last assignment or for the whole semester.

The process book is meant to be an easily digestible way for critics, potential employers and classmates to understand how you arrived at your end forms. You may design the book as loosely or as orderly as you see fit. Although the form of the book is always important, we will not focus on the form on the last day of class. The objective and emphasis of the critique will be on how you make what you have done outside the class visible and understandable.

You may use Hans’ section assignment as a guideline:

• Summarize the assignment; what was the challenge?
• Briefly explain your process.
• Discuss your work based on the challenges:
• How successful was it?
• Which insights did you gain?
• What worked and what did not?
• Where and how can you improve it?
• Which tools and techniques were useful?
• What else would you have liked to explore?
• If you worked in groups, how well did the group work together. Describe and discuss your contributions to the group. How could the group interaction be improved.
• Finish with a summary of what you learned.

Due in digital form on the last day of class: May 13 and documented in physical form by May 21 and posted in pdf form on the website.

í Assignment 4: Part 2

Sketches of Exhibition Ideas

Based on your research and mapping, identify opportunities to create a more dynamic exhibition for your selected object(s). Pay close attention to the environment and the display. Based on the class lecture, what are some of the elements you could rethink? How could you change the context? How could you encourage participation?
Try to identify multiple design opportunities (at least 2) to present to the class.

Presentation

Your sketch ideas will be presented in a formal digital presentation (pdf or keynote), with a minimum of 10 slides. The following elements must be included in the presentation:

• At least 1 slide to introduce the object you selected in the collection
• At least 1 slide to present your research
• At least 1 slide to present existing context
• At least 1 slide that identifies your specific audience
• At least 4 slides to present your project ideas

Your slides should contain audio and visual (videos, diagrams, maps, typography) that best represent your research and ideas. Don’t forget titles, and any text necessary to convey your thoughts. Any hand drawings you choose to include must be detailed.

For week 3

Update your presentation to focus on one direction and show progress on your project for next week. “Messy”/in-progress work is expected at this stage.

Here’s the final version of the Access infommercial! It’s shorter and flows much better than the previous version.

Access is both a product and a service that replaces the need for a security pass or a key. Utilizing RFID tagging technology, it allows users to gain access to services and spaces much more efficiently than before.
