University of Arts Logo

The mission for a session in 2013 and 2014 at the Departement for Communication in Social and Economic Contexts at the University of Arts was to transport the method Cultural Probes by letting students design their own Cultural Probes in workshop mode step by step. Cultural Probes is „a technique used to inspire ideas in a design process. The probes are small packages that can include any sort of artifact (like a map, postcard, camera or diary) along with evocative tasks, which are given to participants to allow them to record specific events, feelings or interactions.“ (Gaver, W, Dunne, A., & Pacenti, E,. Design: Cultural Probes, Interactions, Vol 6, Issue 1, Jan/Feb 1999)
