Keri Smith http://www.kerismith.com is a Canadian conceptual artist and author of several bestselling books about creativity. The main focus of her work/research is on creating what the writer Umberto Eco called “Open works”, pieces that are completed by the reader/user.
Artists and scientists analyse the world around them in surprisingly similar ways, by observing, collecting, documenting, analysing, and comparing. In her captivating guided journals, readers are encouraged to explore their world as both artists and scientists.
The mission Smith proposes?? To document and observe the world around you, as if you’ve never seen it before. Take notes. Collect things you find on your travels. Document findings. Notice patterns. Copy. Trace. Focus on one thing at a time. Record what you are drawn to?
In this ultra creative workshop Ruud Cox and Huib Schoots will use Keri Smith’s work to teach exploratory testing. Using Keri’s playful assignments, participants will explore software, observe, document, collect information, analyse and compare. 
Join this fun workshop and unleash the explorer in you.
Example assignment from “How to be an explorer of the world:
People Watching: Sit in a public location and document people you see for one hour. Take detailed notes. Make sketches of one item that stands out most about each person.
Alternatively People Mapping: Visit a local park or public area. Create a color-coded map of the position of the other people in relation to you. Note what the people looked like (what they were wearing).
