Medieteknikens högre seminarium gästas nästa vecka av Elena Márquez Segura som kommer att presentera följande:

Embodied Core Mechanics and Embodied Sketching. Strategies for the Design of Embodied Play

This seminar taps into the challenge of designing for experiences of social and physical play in a co-located interactive setting. In particular, I will talk about an alternative approach to design that considers as design assets not only the technology, but other contextual elements, such as the players or participants themselves, physical artifacts, and the space where the activity unfolds.

To flesh out this approach, I will present two concepts: embodied core mechanics, and embodied sketching.
The former is appropriated from the general concept of core mechanics in game studies, while the later set forth strategies for understanding and designing embodied core mechanics early in the design process.

These will be illustrated with examples from several installations and exploration studies.

Tid: Onsdag den 24 februari kl . 13-15
