During the Air[craft] workshop I invited three participants to explore a range of design probes as stimuli to stir reflections and stimulate imaginative thinking. The probes were designed with a certain level of an unfinished element that creates room for reflection on a sense of self. A variety of materials and forms has been explored to give participants options to freely choose the ones that speak to them most.
During my doctoral research, I developed the method of dialogical sketching. The method enabled an iterative dialogue not bound by certainty, but more by inference, interpretation and suggested meanings. Systems of sketching scaffolded conversations about personal issues and feelings that were difficult to articulate in a way that was imaginative, rather than descriptive.
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.
