Before starting the environments track, my idea of environments was very broad and hard to explain to other people. Now that I have a better understanding, I can see that I wasn’t too far off. The explanation on the other hand is still difficult. We design in spaces; it’s just hard to communicate what the definition or parameters of ‘space’ are because ‘space’ can be anything.
After completing the first stage of the assignment and listening to critique, I am starting to notice how environment design is extremely complex. There are an innumerable amount of variables and situations to keep track of. I feel like I could create thousands of iterations for the interface because there’s always a new perspective that needs to be considered. However, I enjoy the complexity of the class discussions and projects. The problem space is really interesting, and I am looking forward to immersing myself further into this area of design.
