Project cultural probe practice


Cultural probe design practice

For our project, we are interested in designing something to make sorting waste easier and more accurate. One major thing we need to understand with this is how people interact with their waste.

For a cultural probe related to our project, we can give volunteers recycling and compost bins to use in their house, observing where they place these bins (in relation to the landfill bin they already presumably have) and noting what waste items, if any, make their way into the recycling and compost bins.
