Before answering teacher Despina’s questions, I jotted down ideas came out from problems(public) side and from interests(personal) side, and I found I had more ideas about interests than problems, does it mean I’m a selfish person?


And here’s the answer of Despina’s questions:

  1. A description of my project
    • – concise description of what your project is –> An online journey within Dream, where world is ambiguous and fulls of traces for you to figure out; e.g. first person view game
      • – who is it for –> Anyone who is troubled by tangled thoughts and feels lost in waking dream
      • – what do you want your user (even if it yourself) when interacting with the work to:
        • – – feel –> Intrigued, surreal 
        • – – do –> Wonder in the world of the dream, embrace the emotions, and try to figure it out the circumstances
        • – – know (information and insights) –> By collecting traces and clues in Dream, users reflect it to their daily lives, knowing they are not the only one who lost, and hopefully feel less lost after that
      • – what is the “problem” you are trying to solve and what is your recommended solution –> problem: information explosion, tangled thoughts, lost feeling; solution: be in a place where users forget about reality, and spread positive(?) seed in user’s perception thus change user’s state of mind when user comes back to real life
      • – what are the opportunities that you see in the problem space –> ???
      • – what are the general challenges in the problem area and what do you think will be your specific challenges –> ???
      • – what research (with references) have you done so far (articles, related projects, materials etc) –> Froid, David Lynch; keywords: dream, perception, memory
  2. What are the technical, spatial, interactional requirements for your project –> webGL/Three.js or Unity, screen based or Oculus Rift, game controller or hopefully physically involved
  3. List of questions and answer them for your project –> TO-DO
  4. Your criteria of success –> User leaves with smile
  5. how do you plan to evaluate this success –> 1) Observe in present, 2) website visit count and duration w/ Google Analytics, 3) email/mail for getting feedback
  6. Draft timeline of how you will spend the next 13(-3) weeks –>TO-DO
