EXPERI M E N TAL DESIGN IDEAS assignment one

B

EXTENSION

Through a tutor supported design investigation of the body in our relationship to things, each student will explore empirically (originating in or based on observation or experience) their own everyday as meaningful context for developing and creating design concepts. Each of you will be engaged with characteristics of factual knowledge, which can be used as a broader, practical, intellectual and theoretical basein the processof designing, from the physical (not sensory). The validity and importance of collected information, their potential for the project, and extended investigation needs to be clearly expressed through a clear processof both collection and interpretive analysis. How can data be collated into a visual expression? How to “read� critically the meanings and values existing in the factual and actual, and to define and articulate different interpretations about them is the underlying premise of assignment one. Each student will illustrate their findings as a whole through illustrated evidence as well as to extract three preferred, inspiring elements. How this evidence is designed becomesa creative intention for which each student is to innovatively express your findings in 2D media. Choosefive everyday activities. Spend a minimum of one hour observing, noticing, engaging in the relationship with all things during these activities - the body and each activity or event. How do things extend the physical body? How do they, beyond their materiality as an artefact, define our expanded existence and participation in our everyday lives?
