November 13, 2014, Jussi Ängeslevä

My understanding of ‘prototyping’ is ‘thinking in the world’ or ‘integrating with the word by physical means’. Prototyping is the creation of simplified and abstracted models, which can be used to examine individual aspects of a design. The see the overall complexity and effect of a design ‘purely in thought’ is impossible past the very[···]
