  • 15. J (mathematician): I was thinking of it mainly algorithmically. And I was thinking of it in terms of the maths that you would need to do to wrap the calcium interface into the [Waveform Relaxation] interface. And then when you made me write it down, I was forced to draw it like this. And this idea would never have come to me, if you hadnt made me do that.

    • Enhances design problem solving by:
    • improving designs,
    • supporting design process (e.g., low cost),
    • enhancing collaboration/communication.
    • Sketching also enhances creativity by:
    • supporting short- and long-term memory,
    • supporting lateral thinking,
    • supporting modeling,
    • enabling cycles of generation and (re)interpretation.
  • 23. Communication & Collaboration, Creativity
