This project seeks to investigate alternative design approaches through the production of events, moments and situations. It combines a range of perspectives and methodologies in order follow the question what could constitute a visual event. Following the research of a particular selection of cases, containing a variety of potentials and strategies, and the presentation of the findings to the class, students of the class will individually produce a “visual event” that has been triggered, inspired or provoked by one of the previously presented topics and observations. These practical events will connect the research with a practical and methodogical response to an extended understanding of design as a discipline – beyond the production of artefacts. Together with contributions by guests of the class a publication will be edited and produced in summer 2014.
