"This paper will examine how we developed three prototypes for Dunamis to work in tandem to revamp the Jamaica Plain Porchfest and address BIPOC community needs. Each prototype is examined in depth as to how they present new design opportunities not only technologically but socially as well. Our rationale and processes are shown to exemplify how we got from beginning to end to create designs that will live beyond our involvement with our community partner, Dunamis. This thesis paper was written in collaboration with Andrew Genova and Ramon Montes, both of whom provided inspiring insight and initiative towards the completion of our project." -- Abstract
