Open Design

Those who attend DIY DAYS will be given a unique opportunity to build a collaborative storyworld. The storyworld and the prototyping that is done throughout the day will be released under a creative commons license as well as being prepared as an experiential learning kit. This will be accomplished through a number of special collaborative exercises.

Wish for the Future – the second chapter in a participatory storytelling trilogy, Wish for the Future will provide attendees of DIY DAYS an opportunity to experience an open design process. From collaborative writing, to experience design, to rapid prototyping exercises – attendees will be able to step into an open design process that invites the imagination of many.

World Game – join the Buckminster Fuller Institute as they run a number of World Game simulations. In the 1960’s Buckminster Fuller proposed a “great logistics game” and “world peace game” (later shortened to simply, the “World Game”) that was intended to be a tool that would facilitate a comprehensive, anticipatory, design science approach to the problems of the world. The use of “world” in the title obviously refers to Fuller’s global perspective and his contention that we now need a systems approach that deals with the world as a whole, and not a piece meal approach that tackles our problems in what he called a “local focus hocus pocus” manner. The entire world is now the relevant unit of analysis, not the city, state or nation.

Time Machine Rooms – a collaboration with Story Pirates will enable a co-created storyworld that is lead by the imagination of elementary school children. The students will represent a voice from the future as well as prototyping a number of inventions from the future.

Writer’s Room – a writer’s room works throughout the day taking in variables from attendees that will impact the creation of an open storyworld that will fuel the end of the day performance.

Rapid Prototyping Room a partnership between Parsons and the Makerbot community will power a rapid prototyping room for those who attend DIY DAYS enabling them to turn ideas about the future into something tangible.

Occupy – step into an open design process around an official OWS conflict resolution application. From paper testing to conflict resolution role playing, participants will be invited into a collaborative design process.

In the media industry, gatekeepers traditionally wield extraordinary power over creatives, as they hold artists’ dreams in their hands. This imbalance has led to a bizarre set of standard deal terms and practices that would seem absurd in any other industry. Now that artists have the power to reach their audiences directly, these old ways are obsolete. Before entering the film business, Brian Chirls worked in finance and construction and attended business school. In this session, he applies his “real world” experience to the problem of negotiating with investors, distributors and platforms, sharing stories of deals good and bad.

    About 5 years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Polly Frost and her husband Ray Sawhill through our mutual friend, Steve Vineberg.
