Not Quite 100 @ Cumulus Belgium
At the design conference Cumulus in Genk, we presented ‘Not quite 100′ to an international audience. The results of four projects were shown in the general exhibition, while we explained the process and the encountered challenges in a paper presentation.
You can download the paper ‘Not quite 100’. A description of design with people with schizophrenic symptoms that we presented at the Cumulus Conference in Genk here.

Workshop Cultural Probes
In May we did a workshop on the use of Cultural Probes in design research for our colleagues of the research group Social Spaces.
Although Cultural Probes have become an umbrella term, they prove a useful point of departure for discussing design research and the adaptation of methods from human centred sciences in design. While we believe experimentation with methods is essential for design research to grow but also emphasizes the need for a shared vocabulary and debate within the design community we discussed the use of Probes in Not Quite 100: what actually happened, some of the problems encountered, and some of the results, and maybe provide valuable insights for other design research designs within our Social Spaces group.
