Installation And Data Visualization, Process Lab: Citizen Design, 2016–17

This is a Installation and Data Visualization. It is dated 2016–17.

In Process Lab: Citizen Design, visitors participate in the design process and are encouraged to envision a better America and greater world. Through a series of questions and choices, visitors are asked to consider what they and their communities care about, define an issue that matters, and utilize design tactics to devise design projects that can make a difference.

The digital interaction in Citizen Design invites participants to use their Pens to record their design processes. By capturing the selections they made with their Pens and downloading the data into a station in the lab, participants and others can see—through data visualization—where their choices fall within the community of the other participants. When participants visit their accounts after leaving Cooper Hewitt, the Citizen Design data visualization continues to update and reflects the most current community data. Days or months later, users will see what percentage of people made their same choices, sharing common values through design thinking.
