Design Knowledge and Impact on Simulation Induced Creativity and Empathy

Design Knowledge and Impact on Simulation Induced Creativity and Empathy

Year: 2016

Editor: Julie Linsey, Maria Yang, and Yukari Nagai

Abstract

Experimental findings from non-design background participants showed that, experiencing a
simulated scenario is more effective in increasing creativity as compared to that of being briefed about
that scenario. The poster probes further on the previous study by comparing the extent of creativity
and empathy induced through both simulations and briefing. For this, participants from a design
background are grouped into two, Group 1 gets briefed about challenges encountered by people with
visual impairment while Group 2 experiences the same through a simulation workshop. Participants
from both groups are asked to share ideas before and after their respective sessions. Ideas are
further analyzed in detail to understand the difference in range of solutions shared by each group.
Such comparison not only helps understand the independent effect of briefing and simulated scenarios
in evoking creativity and empathy, but also shows how design knowledge could help individuals perceive
such techniques.

ds conference4th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DESIGN CREATIVITY (ICDC), 2nd to 4th November, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA

NEW DEADLINE- Full paper submission: 22nd April, 2016 Design creativity is an important and interesting topic of study in design. Since it involves the profound and essential nature of design, design creativity is expected to be a key in not only addressing the social problems that we are facing, but also producing an innate appreciation for beauty and happiness in our minds. In order to elucidate the nature of design creativity, the following issues are being studied: cognitive processes underlying...

Special Interest Group (SIG)Design Creativity

The objective of SIG - Design Creativity is to study creativity in design. We have not sufficiently clarified creativity, especially in the context of design, although it is a very interesting characteristic in the thinking process of humans. This research discusses creativity in design instead of trying to identify its standard characteristics. That is, it tries to answer the question “What is design?” from the viewpoint of creativity, for two perspectives. First, this SIG discusses the characteristics...
