The Artful Dodger is the design outcome as well as the process of developing my MA research and studies - Participatory Design Methodology: through using public's objects and stories. What I am trying to accomplish is a method where participation is manifested at all three levels: the idea (design/story); the making (physical/material); and the use (interaction).



The method begins with a series of interviews that collect the story from the public. The work is not make from scratch but based on an existing ordinary object. By collaging an object with its story and a story about an object, a new form and function will born, which should be able to build a strong connection and association with the public.

It is a chair for stealing coins from people's pocket.

“巧”不僅是一個设计成果,它更是我的硕士研究論文的重要过程及印證 - 論文命題為“透過使用公眾物件和故事之參與式設計方法”。我试图在三个設計层次上引用公眾的參與:概念上(设计/故事),制作上和使用上(互动)。

 

設計企劃开始時對公眾進行了一系列的采访,從而收集故事;同時,在坊間尋找被遺棄的不起眼的物件。通過故事與物品之間的錯配,一个新的形和功能因而產生。由此方法設計的成品理應能夠與大眾建立較强大的连接和共鳴。

 

“巧”是可从人们的口袋里偷硬币的椅子。
