DESIGN | WEB | GRAPHIC
Semioception is a one-page interactive website prototype created using bootstrap. Interactions were user-tested through paper prototyping and short activities. The design prompt was to choose a city described in the book Invisible Cities and create a short design project around it, harnessing tools such as domain mapping, paper prototyping, structured user-testing, and rapid tech prototyping.
SEMIOTICS + PERCEPTION = SEMIOCEPTION
If you couldn’t speak, how could you describe your experience of a city, visited or not using symbolic representations artifacts, gestures and facial expressions paired with non-language sounds?
People can describe places without the use of language. In Invisible Cities, an explorer does so through artifacts, gestures, and non-language sounds & paired facial expressions. By mapping these three categories of non-language expressions to classes of graphical symbols, an equally accurate and meaningful representation can be evoked. Emblems have power and will cause users to have emotional reactions.
