You might already know how to conduct usability tests, do an in-depth-interview or to observe people using your product. But have you ever used art to do research?
In this workshop you will learn how to turn your personal art form into a research method that you can use at work. Maike will give examples of design researchers having done just that, and she will show her own artistic research where she used photography to research the role of empathy within digital government. At the end of this workshop you will be able to carry out your first artistic research iteration with participants.
To join this workshop make sure to have a research question or design challenge on hand and, of course, your art form. It can be anything and it doesn’t have to be logical.
