1. How did physically acting out help to explore ideas?
By just thinking in a problem situation to achieve a design solution you may skip some important details that might be important later on inside your your design process. Acting a scenario with the help of your team members helps you enrich the things you may have given for granted for first instance. Each of the members experience is really valuable because it is different in some ways from one another and gives you a wide range of ideas for brainstorming and to find a possible solution to any given problem.
2. Did you refine your ideas and solutions to the problem through bodystorming? in what way?
We first discussed our ideas and agreed to have a starting point on our scenario. After that, my teammates started acting and I played the role of a viewer and I wrote everything what was happening inside of our story. Then we switched roles and became part of the story. This role switching was really useful because we could have a really good idea contribution inside the group. As I said before, by just writing your thoughts sometimes makes you forget the things you might do while acting /recreating them.
3. What was difficult or challenging about bodystorming?
I didn’t find it difficult at all. I think it was a good idea to bring more and better ideas to the table.
4. Does bodystorming lend itself to certain types of problem?
Well, the only problem I might identify is that we might cross this thin line from having a real situation, to a really made up (fiction) story and deviate attention from what the real problem is.
