1) How did physically acting out help to explore ideas? .
Actually, it helps a little for me to release my pressure during the process of warming up when I need continuously speak for about 2 minutes.
2) Did you refine your ideas and solutions to the problem through bodystorming? In what way?
it is quiet useful during the process of bodystrming. It refers us to some areas we did not notice during the brainstorming. For example, when we first put up the idea of improving the condition of hospital waiting room is there may some impolite behaviours occurred and what we can do to avoid it. However, when we turn to the bodystorming stage, things became different. The role who break the queue is seriously sick and cannot wait for the queue. At this time, we think more about how to solve the emergency problems rather than solve the managing the queue itself. The solution I gave this occasion is that the hospital can give every patient in the waiting room an emergency badge. When unpredictable occasion happens, the patient can press the button on the badge to look for help.
3) What was difficult or challenging about bodystorming?
The inner ideas can hardly be displayed on the stage. What the bodystorming showed us is roughly about their simple behaviours. But there is also a need to get hang of the reasons behind their behaviours. Without voiceover, however, it cannot be attached.
Also, with the time limit and lack of enough actors, we cannot mimic all the possibilities in the bodystorming.
4) Does bodystorming lend itself to certain types of problems?
Obviously, referring from the questions mentioned above, it does exist. When bodystorming, the roles think more about making the roles’ behaviours into rationalities. So certain types of problems occurred thanks to different ideas of the actors. Some detailed information and ignored reasons rose to the surface.
