Real-time co-analysis: Probing lived experiences and analysing material data


Presenting Author(s): Kelly Anderson, Yi Zhang
03 February 2021

How might real-time co-analysis be utilised to produce new knowledge for both designer and participant?

Often in workshops that surface participant insights, the analysis of the artefacts and remnants are left for the workshop facilitators, usually back at a desk and with little time. Even with written reports, it is often a long time before the results, trends and insights are shared with participants and others. This workshop starts with generating data through reflecting on an aspect of your creative practice using materials, followed by experiments in co-analysis of the data we generate.

This Workshopping Workshops session offers an opportunity to explore real-time co-analysis of data in material and visual forms.
We invite creative practitioners who work with non-numerical data (visual/material/embodied/intuitive, etc.) as well as those who are interested in new ways to integrate co-analysis activities into their practice.

Europe (CET): 3rd February 2021 1:45 am to 3:45 am

US (EST): 2nd February 2021 7:45 pm to 9:45 pm

Please Note: This workshop is available to those who have registered and received an email confirming their attendance from the workshop facilitators. We apologise that we cannot accommodate additional participants.

With a background in Industrial Design, Kelly has also completed a Masters in Transdisciplinary Design at Parsons in New York, where she was awarded several distinctions including the John L. Tishman Scholarship for her commitment to sustainable development, design, and construction, and the IDEO & Knight Foundation Civic Design Fellowship to explore how design may be used to strengthen community identity and resilience within the city of Detroit. Kelly is currently completing her PhD with WonderLab at Monash University, while also teaching. Originally from The States, she now calls Melbourne home.
