A single interactive installation can require many different specialties like coding, design, animation, fabrication, AV production and architecture. For a designer producing an experimental installation idea, this overhead can be daunting. To overcome my own fear and to avoid pitching only safe ideas, I began making video prototypes of imaginary physical installations. Prototypes like this are fairly pervasive, mainly for “visions of the future.” Yet I never thought of them as a creative tool until recently.

What started as a simple tool for pitching complex interactive ideas has sped up my own creative process. In this session, I will show 3 non-working prototypes I made without the confines of budget, feedback, and time and talk about how this changed the way I work. Beware, this could change your process as well.
