When I was asked to do visual scribing at workshop about robotics my first response was an instant ‘yes!’. A proud geek at heart I have always admired science and people who get it as my own brain just wasn’t made for those skills. The workshop was a team gathering¬†for¬†Being There, a research project¬†investigating “how cutting-edge robotics might impact upon our experience of public space and bridge the gaps between the ways we communicate in person and online.” Sounds pretty rad, right?

The workshop was split into two parts: in the morning the discussion explored robot and human interaction and in the afternoon the participants got busy imagining future scenarios and personas using robots. It was such fun live scribing the content and get to see robot demonstrations! It also challenged my own ideas about future scenarios and connections between the human and the machine. Here is the final piece finished on the day for your perusal:
