Food. Something most of us take for granted. But should we? Why or when do we trust the food we eat? Some look at labels, others talk to friends, some don't think at all.
This is only one of the topics that we talked about in our introduction to presence and the design of trust.
Today was an interesting but also confusing day. We talked about presence, trust and the YUTPA. How does time, place, relation and action effect the degree of trust you put in something or someone?
I think it can be an effective tool in architecture and design to help understand why some configurations are succesfull and others aren't. Because if you aproach the problem of trust with the YUTPA-model, it become clear that trust can be orchestrated - and therefor designed.
Right now, it's still not completely clear for me but I'm looking forward to discovering this concept. And hopefully apply it succesful in my own field of work - architecture.
