# Assignment 1 ideas

Int space

Idea 1 – listening with intent

• A rope laid out in a straight line
• 2 person stand facing away from each other at both ends of rope
• Aim is to reach middle first by walking backwards
• Each person has metal dish with a metal spoon.
• One person starts by quietly walking . There is no timing to when he/she chooses to start .
• Other person listens carefully, and sounds the dish if he/she can hear the other person walking.
• If person walking is caught, he/she stops and the turn is passed on to other by sounding of dish a few times
• This continues till one reaches middle

Idea 2 – trust, communication without words

• A rope laid out in a straight line, about 4-5m?, on a grass field
• 2 person stand facing each other at both ends of rope, with both hands holding onto rope in a tug-of-war position
• both people try to coordinate with each other to lean backwards on an increasingly acute angle while relying on the other for support, without using any words
• goal is to see how acute an angle can be achieved

Idea 3 – instead of relying on visual for memory tasks, rely on touch

• there is a table with 10 objects, placed in a big shallow box, with an opaque lid
• 2 people standÂ  opposite of each other, one of them blindfolded
• first(non-blind-folded) person chooses 5 objects and arranges it in a certain order from left to right, he/she has to remember it
• first person claps, signaling second person to start by touching the objects n memorising the order
• when done, second person claps, and first person can proceed to jumble up all the items with the other remaining unused objects, then claps again when done
• second person then proceeds to try and recreate the ordered objects, and claps when done
• if the order is correct, the first person double claps, and the game is over
