Instructor: Salvador Orara

This workshop explores the power of generating prototypes using low-fidelity materials and deploying them into the public for contextualization and observation. Using the design framework of the "Four Pleasures" by Patrick Jordan; how might we prototype a pathway, a dispenser, or a trap within the PNCA community?

The workshop is guided by a survey of projects and several design prompts targeting the PNCA community. Followed by a rapid prototyping session and an observational deployment into the desired context.

Requirements: A camera for taking video. A critical imagination. A collaborative spirit. The ability to install a "pop-up installation" on the PNCA campus/building.

Materials: Materials will be provided but attendees may purchase or bring their own. (Note: Materials are not required to be digital. Materials like boxes and cardboard are expected).
