To recap a few of the highlights:
We talked on how to motivate people to engage in our installation and based on the list in a previous post we quickly gathered on Contribution, both active and passive. The active route would be for people to give something to the entity in form of; A song, a name, a picture (of your face), a question, a video among others we discussed (Look at the first white board). The passive route would be monitoring activity, use of sensors to capture motion, sounds, etc. That can be fed into the entity again without action needed. Then when the uninterested or the ones without time see they as well affect the entity they might get more interested?
We did a complete round and discussion of what people felt the entity was like (Describe our (AHO)entity's personality). And our list grew quite long (see white board #2). A selection from the board:
Cold (Got a number of hits)
Vain (Obsessed with image)
Like a factory (both visually and "personally")
Transparent (The Glass walls)
Fragmented, but grouped (like a Zoo)
A part of the family
Phew, that was almost all. This looks rather negative, but we found a way of turning this into something positive. The above describes the personality of our entity, not the installation(s). So we turned the board again and looked at what we wanted to do.
Increase awareness of yourself as a part of AHO
Fall in love with AHO
