Abstract"Seeing precedes talking". Together we will use various sources to investigate the "correct" way of seeing. The course is offered as an online seminar and supplemented by presentations and practical exercises.
ObjectiveThrough a phenomenological examination of various sources (art, film, design, architecture) we will investigate the "correct" way of seeing. Above insights are complemented by practical exercises allowing to reflect on individual perception patterns.
Content"Seeing precedes talking". What contributes to the act of seeing? It starts with the physical process of light hitting our retina through our eyes. Using these images we construct a part of our perceived reality. In the history of art, design and architecture, there are protagonists who are dedicated to the question of seeing and thus to the construction of reality. During the course we will use various sources to investigate the "correct" way of seeing. We will discuss the different points of view and the corresponding levels of meaning. Small practical design exercises will help us to experience the connections between recognising and creating.
