The ball drops and you can draw lines that it bounces off of. It is almost like an improvisational rube goldberg machine. The sounds it makes are pretty too so if you can get a structure set up, you can just listen to it for a bit — especially if you like blips like I do.

But this isn’t explicitly feminist, you might say! I’ve been thinking about improvisation and ethnography as a form of knowing during this fieldwork in design methods here in India. I’m allowing for the fact I might respond to something with the senses and without thinking too analytically about it, putting it out there to explore what happens. Maybe you’ll like it, maybe you will contribute a bit of randomness too, or maybe it bores you. Only way to tell is by trying.
