Validation from the Public

After sketching out our concepts and refining them into narratives with storyboards, we went back out to Westlake to ask the public what they thought of the concepts and which one they believe would be more effective. We discovered that this process was more simple than first expected, discovering that when it comes to discussing narratives in a three dimensional space, the storyboard can actually hinder the process rather than facilitate it.

Once we made this initial discovery, we stopped using the storyboards as visual aides and simply walked people through the gestures as they would play out in the space around them. This encouraged people to make suggestions and to imagine the interactions with their physical presence rather than relying on a two-dimensional diagram to convey their opinions.
