GlastoTat is a conceptual physical and digital product that uses skin sensors to enhance and capture the experience of multi-day musical festivals. Our team created a unique full service experience journey from ticket purchase to a memorable closing experience after the festivities when the sensor becomes a souvenir. Heat sensors and heart rate data capture moments to create a visual guided journey of the day’s events. Moments that are easily shared with friends and a product that itself becomes a memory.
Our team was made up of 6 designers all with varied interests and backgrounds. To agree to a final brief and solution was a challenge in itself. This was as much of a team dynamics challenge as it was a design one. We collaborated to create a brief that fit all of our interests and learning outcomes. The hardest and most difficult part of being a designer is focusing on one small aspect of a larger picture. Our first idea was to capture memories, this lead to too many ideas and not enough focus. The ability to stop ideating in order to focus, is a task and challenge on its own when creating a self initiated brief. We managed to focus all of our energy to a specific need to help create a very tangible and memorable experience.
