Around Sound [2015]

With Sophie Gaur

Human beings react to sound in various ways. Sounds can excite, soothe, heal or energise, as well as offer a range of emotional, intellectual and physical responses, based on how they are delivered. This studio explores this area of this sensory delivery through the design and construction of objects that either respond to existing musical traditions

Body Movin’

with Dr Scott Mayson

This studio evolves emerging practices in design where consumers are customising an artefact with a personalised sense of creation. Traditionally, a products form is finalised, pre-manufacture, with little room for evolution. What if advanced design and manufacturing tools afforded the designer the ability to allow consumers to manipulate their designs within a

SynAesthesia designlab: heath and well-being

Lecturers: Dr Malte Wagenfeld & Simone Steel

The SynAestheia designlab investigates the design of objects, systems, environments, experiences and spaces which present the user with a multitude of sensory data; tactile, olfactory, auditory, kinaesthetic and so on, as well as temporal dimensions; to create what may be called a hyper-sensorial design paradigm.

Theme 1: Healthcare – Consider

Dirt Dreams: batch production in slip-cast ceramics

Lecturer: Judith Glover

Ah…the humble porcelain bowl or cup…or is it? Could you make one? Could you make a thousand? Could you make any money? What else could you design and make if you understood the process—the possibilities of form, ornamentation and decoration not available in any other processes?
This studio will explore the rigours of slip-cast

SuperStrusion

Lecturers: Scott Mayson & Scott Mitchell

The Dr Scott’s SuperStrusion Fun Time Studio Good Times.
Participants in the SuperStrusion studio will develop and build unique extruder heads for use in a 3D printer. These print heads will not extrude plastic, instead they will enable interesting soft materials to be extruded even eaten! Your design will be based

Design as Narrative: Explorations in Object Making through Storytelling

Lecturers: Simone LeAmon and Din Heagney

Stories are ubiquitous – they surface everywhere; we hear them, read them and watch them unfold in art as we do in life. Through narrative stories transmit messages and inspire meaning; they are deployed as fiction, parables and myth. They also locate us in time and place; committed to memory,

Book—Lab

Georgia Hutchison and Sophie Gaur

Book Lab addresses the spatiality, culture and intangibility of reading. The traditional artifact of the ‘book’ is transforming, mutating. New forms are celebrated: art book fairs, independent publishing, handmade books, podcast libraries, long-form and micro-publishing, twitter feeds, publication as exhibition, storytelling nights and reading rooms, book clubs, etcetera.

This studio explores and celebrates the

Connect Collaborate: The nature of work in the digital age

Oliver Field & Stephen Wallace

We are living amongst the greatest shift in workplace design since the industrial revolution. Production based economies are diminishing under the rise of a knowledge based global economy.

Data is the new oil; 3rd wave technologies enable workers to create, manipulate, collaborate and distribute information in unprecedented ways.

The workplace is global; businesses

Haptic-ware

Gyungju Chyon

We experience our world through diverse stimuli perceived by our brain. As we grow from infant to child to adult, these stimuli develop into awareness, meanings and values. Sensorial experiences with artifacts, food, and the world around us structure and deepen our living experiences. A move to a more ecological future requires a deeper
