Starting from the brief “ignore these prompts and do what you feel is appropriate”, I decided to conclude this semester by the picking up the keyword – Perspectives.
Having engaged with multiple perspectives of my cohort, the perspectives of all the authors and papers we read and those of my faculty – It really intrigued me to explore how ‘point of view/s’ influence our work and how we can use them to generate tools to map user behaviours.
How does point of view/perspectives inform my practice?
I don’t know how to answer this question yet or if this even is the right question to ask. But I did do a small exercise with my family members. I took a basic building block of design – Colour – and asked them to define it using the perspective of another person/object in a simple phrase. The results really pushed me to ponder upon and made me aware to the realities of the others around me.
