As the Pong/Breakout game is taking longer than expected, I have decided to take a break from it and move onto work for this week 3 which is themed around ‘Rapid Ideation’. I will continue to document the progress for my game, alongside the work I produce for the rapid ideation week.
As there may be some alternation between different categories of work, I will make sure I will tag them accordingly to make it easier for you, the reader, to follow. Additionally, I have added a function that allows you to filter posts by the week they are linked to; this can be done in the ‘Week by week’ block to the right of this post.
I have looked through all the materials for Rapid Ideation this week (Flex.falmouth.ac.uk. 2021) and the irony is that the work I did for the Pong/Breakout game probably has more relevance to this week than last week.
For this week, I will learn about different methods of rapid ideation, which allow me to generate ideas in a short amount of time, but also means of executing these ideas. I will also learn about prototyping and the role it plays in generating ideas for creative artefacts as well as the generation of creative artefacts. I will also consider numerous methods of prototyping, which produce different results.
The challenge for this week is to take a piece of work or an aspect of a piece of work I find interesting and then ‘reverse engineer’ them, which means to take them apart and find out how they work, as well as the design theory behind them. I will then create prototypical representations of my chosen artefact, using various prototyping methods.
