Had a long meeting with my group mate yesterday in the library. We were discussing where we are going with the project – theories, viewpoints and how it all relates to the degree we’re doing.
Because it is a new professional degree, only 5-6 years old, it’s still very much up to us to define what we want to do with it and exactly what the profession should be. At the same time, of course, it is important that we are sufficiently in alignment with what our lecturers think it is about, so on Friday we have a group meeting to bounce some viewpoints off our supervisor, also. See what that does.
In order to get some empirical material, I did a telephone interview with a female naturist yesterday, it was a very lovely lady who was friendly, open and happy – very pleasant to talk to, and I had multiple laughs along the way. She is also a model, so I got a few bits of input on that front, too.
She also told me of their mobile sauna – an old camping caravan stripped of all the furniture and fitted as a sauna, so they are going to drive that one around on the beaches this summer, inviting people in. I’ll admit to giving them a great LIKE on Facebook. What a great idea for an experience design. And simple, too.
Apart from this, I still take some photos, and try to make time for some good long walks.
