1. How did physically acting out help to explore ideas?
I never realized a physical act can help that much for design, by reading the actor’s body language we can find the clue to make a design which is suitable for the circumstances (but needed a good actor first !)
2. Did you refine your ideas and solutions to the problem through body storming? In what way?
My group chose “sleeping in airplanes” scenario, I personally understand how hard to sleep during the flight, and also that becomes an issue to other members. We asked the actor to act different problem we had on plane, and exchange our ideas to make a solution.
3. What was difficult or challenging about body storming?
I think different actor has different way to present their feels about the circumstances. And some problems we found act similar.
4. Does body storming lend itself to certain types of problems?
Body storming can easily define and solve some physical issue but some problems are come from the technique aspect which can not be solve by body storming
