During a workshop participants make multiple curiosities – small, conceptual projects – centred around a specific (desired) topic. A range of short assignments (pressure-cooker format) help them in questioning the topic, and finding new interpretations.

在工作坊期间,参与者将利用自己的好奇心创作很多的作品——从一个特定的主题延展的概念性的小项目。在强压下创作出一系列作品的方式,让他们可以提出很多与主题相关的问题,并找到新的传达方式。

工作坊的过程

During this 5-day workshop students researched & experimented how to let their designs start a dialogue and adapt, react or interact with their environment. By looking at relationships within the design, and relations it can form they made systematic designs with which they’ve challenged themselves and their audience to participate in a dynamic presentation of their findings during the workshop. Last but not least, we developed several dynamic identities for Yangshan Peach Blossom Festival.

Discover, wonder, interact… Design is alive!

C.o.c.o.i. 在为期5天的工作坊中,同学们经过调研和实验,尝试让他们的作品与观众对话,与环境互相影响。通过观察各个元素之间的关系,并联系它,他们尝试了系统设计;通过动态的展示,他们邀请观众参与他们的发现,并与他们的作品互动。我们也非常荣幸地为阳山桃花节设计了动态的品牌形象。

探索、好奇、交互……设计是有生命的!
