Visualization 1 – VIZ01 Drawing as a basis for thinking, exploring, prototyping and sharing
“CONNECTING THINKING TO DOING”
Tutor (Name & short Bio)
Dennis Luijer, MSc. – Visually yours.
Fridays 9.30 – 15.30
COURSE DESCRIPTION & THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK (What is this course about?)
In any context where ‘something’ is created from ‘nothing’, the artist/Designer needs to formulate an opinion based on his or her surroundings. Visualization 01 challenges the students to draw out their thinking with fast sketches and clear writing, enabling them to do quick studies, explore possibilities or make fast prototypes of their thinking and share those thoughts or stories with others (if or when needed or desired). In the last decade “VISUAL THINKING” has gained momentum as an increasingly more important and valued way we use our brain (7 intelligences) . Its importance is growing because of the accelerating amount of information we share. In order to keep some kind of overview in an ever more complicated world we need to be able to look, feel and connect quickly, in order to be able to reflect and relate what is happening around us and express this in unique and original ways. Making thinking Visible is not a luxury anymore. Visual communication and the ability to share your story at a moments notice is becoming more and more important. Visualization 01 equips the students with the ability to SHARE their thinking through simple drawings. Connecting their thinking to what they are doing allows them not only to connect with their subjects, but empowers them to be able to SHARE THEIR STORY.
COURSE OBJECTIVES (What can you achieve?)
This course jumpstarts the use of rapid Visualization skills to support the I/M/D students in constantly reflecting on what they are thinking and why.
Quickly explore directions and make studies of their surroundings, themselves and how they relate their own opinion(s) to others.
The objective of this course is to teach the students to get comfortable in drawing out their thinking quickly and challenge them to start making thinking tangible at the most early stages of their creative process.
Connecting thinking to doing by making thinking something you can confront and interact with
The objective of this course is to learn how to fail fast and fail forward, and do this in an open and transparent way, so you get used to sharing and organizing your own feedback.
