Air[craft] Workshop: Staged Atmosphere

The Air[craft] workshop is explorative co-design workshop, pondering three women experiences of micro transitions to gain insight into how and where digital jewellery might play a role in the personal aspects of micro-transitions.

Where is your sense of self grounded during the transition from one place to another? What is your relationship with a familiar situation that is changing? How do the dynamics shift from one place to the other? What brings you comfort? 

The workshop was set up at the Aviation Academy in Newcastle, near the Newcastle airport on a stationary aeroplane. The workshop took the form of a theatre performance where I acted as a flight assistant and invited participants to explore a range of open-ended crafted probes as stimuli to stir reflections and stimulate imaginative thinking. The aim of the workshop was to explore if others experience similar situations and identify opportunities for digital jewellery to support a sense of self in the context.

Announcements during the flight helped participants to explore the probes and their meaning and reflect on notions of home, relationships with their body and others. The probes, designed for each participant, introduce a range of materials. Read more for about the Design Probes here.

The research argues for a perspective which the authentic environments, the probes and the theatricality of the workshops are all equally important to engage people to talk about their feelings, their frustrations, their excitements or moments of anticipation and explore design opportunities of reassuring the self in a particular context.
