Designing from within: humanaquarium (2011)

Author(s): Taylor R, Schofield G, Shearer J, Wallace J, Wright P, Boulanger P, Olivier P

    Abstract: We present an experience-based approach to designing a collaborative interactive performance, humanaquarium. Our research explores public interaction with digital technology through the practice-based inquiry of an inter-disciplinary team of interaction designers and musicians. We present a method of designing experience from within, literally situating ourselves within the performance/use space and assuming the roles both of performers and of designers as we develop and refine the humanaquarium project over the course of a year's worth of public performances.
