Shadowbox Prototyping: A Method for Live Interface Enactments

This is a brief writeup on a recent publication for “shadowbox prototyping” – a method my team and I used to convey interaction prototypes with remote clients. The work was presented at the Ethnographic Praxis in Industry Conference in March. From the abstract:

“Working with a remote client to develop interaction design concepts, we found ourselves in need of a quick‐and‐dirty way to share half‐formed design ideas. Using a document camera, a telepresence application capable of sharing images and audio, and a reconfigurable paper prototype, we devised a method we called “shadowbox prototyping” to approximate an interactive onscreen experience with a remote collaborator, while allowing us to quickly iterate through interface ideas in real‐time.”
