89173 Design Workshop: New Poetics

6cp; 3hpw, weekly practical workshop



In this workshop, students investigate physical properties of object–human relationships through design prototyping in low-fidelity materials, such as paper and cardboard. Students investigate the possibilities of form, the relationship between 2D and 3D surfaces, and how to bring design research, insight and prototyping together in a series of different outputs. Students have the opportunity to undertake workshops to gain skills with either animation technologies or selected technologies of material and environmental production, performance and interactivity. This subject has an extensive appeal across product design, narrative animation, textiles, visual communication, service and interaction design. The interrelated ideas explored in the subject content appropriately align with industry research, development and practice.
