Day Two Afternoon

Modelling, Manipulation, Mess and Meaning


The Iterative design process is messy, so we’ll try some messy ways to generate ideas. This is a chance for you to indulge yourself in the creative process, to take risks, trust your subconscious creative self and embrace the odd, unusual or seemingly impossible to see where it takes you and what comes out of it.

This session will use instinct, intuition, group collaboration and the art of tinkering to explore modelling and manipulate simple materials. We’ll use these techniques to form the basis of a 3D prototyping exercise to quickly develop our ideas into the first iteration of an object.

Creativity doesn’t happen by accident. The better you understand your creative process the easier it will be guide your students to develop theirs.
