Working From Home: The Desk View

Posted on March 11, 2020 by John Willshire

Some years ago, as a Smithery Project, I made one of these: an articulate camera for use in video calls and making films where I wanted a 'desk view' of moving Artefact Cards around.

What with the current uncertainty around Coronavirus, and an increasing number of people working from home, there's probably a need to share this again.

As a simple way to explain ideas, moving Artefact Cards around on a desk whilst talking over what you're thinking is a good way to work remotely with more complex problems, explorations and explanations.

Here's an example film I did at the time.
