2019 Mastercraft Workshops

 

FEBRUARY 28

6:30-8:30PM

City of Experiences 

As the digital landscape evolves, humans have more fluid opportunities to intersect with physical and digital realms as they navigate the city and its experiences, creating a series of micro-interactions that occur across and throughout urban spaces. If we modify the definition of cities to encompass the experiences of the invisible cities that extend beyond physical infrastructure, the city can become a space of greater potential to support and facilitate new people-to-people and people-to-object interactions. Encouraging this new way of approaching interaction, policy and city building have the potential to develop more adaptive service delivery and relationships within the city in the future.

In this workshop, you will explore and experiment with the proposal of city building through experience design, imagining the experiences of the city first and then building the physical and digital city up from those experiences. Taking an interactive approach, you will participate in a collaborative timelining exercise, exploring how emotions and desires, and then products and services, have influenced the development of the city. The process of overlaying experiential emotions and feelings with products, systems, and services brings into focus the relationships—both new and known—through the specific lens of city building, allowing us to speculate in new futures and alternate storylines of the past.
