The suitcase journey started with my PhD thesis Lavoretti per bimbi - Playful Triggers as keys to foster collaborative practices and workspaces where people learn, wonder and play. The thesis explored ways to use design tools and methods to foster collaborative practices in organizational contexts.
After completing my dissertation, I have been fortunate to display the PhD in a Suitcase in multiple contexts and observe multiple audiences interacting with it. I also had the opportunity to further explore the use of travelling containers as metaphors and spaces for co-creation. Below, some images of the thesis and of a 2006 interactive installation at MART, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto in Italy. The video is from a 2010 virtual talk I gave to the ABR-Studio at the University of Alberta.
