89173 Design Workshop: New Poetics

6cp; 3hpw, weekly practical workshop

Postgraduate

Description

In this workshop studio, students explore hybrid methods and theories of prototyping using video and animation. By investigating physical properties of object–human relationships through design prototyping in low-fidelity materials, such as paper and cardboard, students will develop a refined narrative communication practice. Students have the opportunity to investigate and research ways of making that support specific cultural and political ideas and develop an appropriately designed hybrid audio-visual narrative response. The subject includes: development of physical forms, exploration of meaning in hand-made objects; using low-cost materials, the relationship of hybrid 2D and 3D modes, theories and processes of making and production, and animated story-telling practice. The subject has extensive appeal across product design, architecture, animation, textiles, visual communication, service and interaction design.
