Ideation Story mining Audio fabrication Object/Icon

Working with 30 postgraduate MasterStudio students at the University of Northwestern Switzerland over two three day sessions spread over two months.

During the first ideation session students worked in teams to develop future contexts, the key players and motivations driving these people / corporations and groups. Following a focussed story mining session a series of short radio plays were developed and recorded.

Following on from the first session groups identified the iconic objects, and artefacts from their developed worlds, they then designed these in detail fabricating and envisaging objects as props for the creation of a photographic ‘archive of objects that haven’t been invented (yet)’.
