Participatory Mapping

Individual Creative Sessions

This participatory design activity uses a visualisation tool, physical and non-digital. The artefact is designed to display ways in which people build privately meaningful recounts of their socio-economic networks by means of creating physical images of them. Participants are given design material and are asked to start building and modeling, as the designer takes a step back and waits for the process to unfold, observing and believing that the process results will be fruitful and useful.
