Curiosity and playfulness are deeply embedded in our mind and feed the urge for learning and exploring. It’s this behavior that pushes intelligent species forward in their evolution. When Jan Willem graduated multimedia design at the Royal College of Arts in London, he was fascinated by this phenomenon and started his quest to unleash this primal source of energy. In our current educational system curiosity and playfulness are often seen as inconvenient. However, the digital age gives us the opportunity to redesign the way we interact so we can evoke this energy instead of restricting it. In this presentation Jan Willem will share his quest and his findings on designing to unleash playfulness and curiosity.
