sitting with art

design research & methodologies

Sitting with Art is  the result of an 11 week class (DES207 - Design Methods) that taught and challenged students to engage with various design methods to solve a speculative problem area. 

Our team tackled Seattle's histories and neighborhoods. We explored how local art can strengthen community bonds and stimulate local exploration and understanding. 

As a result of research with local artists, art/art history professors, and community creatives we produced a network of interconnected benches that prompt users to stop, appreciate, and reflect upon public art.

Alongside: Joyce Lin, Yuna Shin, Ashley Wang

During: January - March 2020

Deliverables: process posters (11x17'), bench prototype, high-fidelity wireframes, print souvenir
