Electronic sketching: Using IdemoBits as tools for synthesis in design research

Vanessa Carpenter, Mikkel Leth Olsen

Abstract


Throughout the process of design research, synthesis is an important aspect for bringing together past and current knowledge to facilitate new ideas.
In this workshop participants will be challenged to explicitly explore their ideas using IdemoBits. IdemoBits are a tangible tool to be used during the process of design research enabling the designer to explore ideas immediately using electronic materials.
This is a very hands-on, active workshop where attendees are expected to participate, contribute, and play; exploring the IdemoBits as tools, and reflecting on the process of synthesis, in order to contribute to a model of ideation.
