Week 1: What is experience? And can we design it?

The reading for this week tackles how experience itself is constructed. I myself have never thought of “experience” as a process that can be formulated and created through science but it has been broken down to even the stages of what experience is.

In the reading of Chapter 4, Making Sense of Experience, they were able to breakdown experience into a framework of four different threads of experience. They are like this

  • The compositional thread
  • The sensual thread
  • The emotional thread
  • The spatial-temporal thread

and all of these break down experience through the connection of senses, emotions and a specific time period. This gives a little more insight to the study of experiences and how experiences can be engineered or designed.
