- How did physically acting out help to explore ideas?
Answer: For me, it is interesting. I get much fun from this activity. During acting, we can uncover deeper requirements. During brainstorming, sometimes we cannot notice the practical in-suit conditions, while for physically acting, the detail issues can be easily found out. It makes design ideas more reasonable and usable.
- Did you refine your ideas and solutions to the problem through body storming? In what way?
Answer: Yes, sometimes. For example, we used to think that one waiting room is enough for both the older people and the younger people, however, when we were in this situation we found that although these two types of people need the same waiting conditions, they have totally different reflections in the waiting room. Therefore, we rethink our initial concepts and get a new idea.
- What was difficult or challenging about body storming?
Answer: Sometimes, we are lack of effective tools and equipment to make the acting more real. Although there are lots of fun during acting, people can easily lose control and forget what they should really do.
4) Does body storming lend itself to certain types of problems?
Answer: Yea, like the hospital waiting room design.
