Moving Traces: Design Elements & Principles

when 21 August 2016 - 2 September 2016
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 3 ECTS
fee EUR 600

The course is made up of three parts and aims at interdisciplinary experiences of design principles like balance, tension, contrast, proprotion, variation and so on.

In the first section we work two- and threedimensional, black&white, with paper, cutter, pen, light and the elements dot and line. It is about simple abstract exercises for the perception of the effects of design principles. In the second part you will learn to create visual movement and interaction with computer. In analogy to a Bauhaus teaching method we integrate short-time body movements. Works of Bauhaus artists from media or stage will inspire you for the last section: designing an own visual moving story about elements and principles as a picture, object, a series, animation, performance or similar.

Aims of the course are learning and exercising design skills, interdisciplinary work with design elements and principles, limitation, broadening of creative thinking and experience of experimental work in the context of Bauhaus.
