- How did physically acting out help to explore ideas?
When we tried to act out our primary idea in the physical way, so many problems emerged suddenly and frustrated our thinking. However, after we solved a series of problems, a clear and feasible idea was put forward.
- Did you refine your ideas and solutions to the problem through body-storming? In what way?
Yes. I was an actor in the process of body-storming, and I learnt how to think from the angle of user. We came up with many ideas to solve problems, but when we tried to act them out through body-storming, we found some ideas were feasible but some ideas were ridiculous.
- What was difficult or challenging about body-storming?
Limited by imagination and furniture in the classroom, we often feel difficult to understand what other group members tried to express or against. I also had trouble in expressing my idea because of my poor body language.
- Does body-storming lend itself to certain types of problems?
Yes. Every method has its shortage, and the biggest problem in body-storming is that not every group member is a talented actor or an objective observer.
