The challenge was to create an activity making possible open coding for a wide group of people (from 20 to 100) and for a wide selection of objects to classify.

The participants are invited to classify entries from the websit dataphys.org in design patterns or design variables. Samuel Huron tested this card game during a workshop at the IEEE VIS conference, during a Dagstuhl seminar, and for teaching purposes.

Two decks of cards. On one side there is a picture of the physicalization, and on the other a summarized explanation from the existing texts on the dataphyz/list website.

The workshop

The cards were classified by the participants by teams, and then discussed with all the group at the end of the session.

Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the conference. The workshop's facilitation was lead by Samuel Huron, he also made some modifications on the task that was given to the participants.

The design patterns classified by the participants were mapped and discussed at the end of the workshop.

Instruction sheet

I also designed an instuction sheet that was provided to the participants and helped them being guided all along the workshop. When it is folded, it is the same size as the cards.
