About this Event

Workshop Leader: John Howrey

Description

Live data and social media have sparked the development of today’s information-driven culture. Every day we do nothing but create data. We spend a lot of times worrying about the data being captured by Facebook, WhatsApp, and TikTok, but what about the other data that we are letting pass by. The bird your dog barked at on his walk. Your giggle at that silly joke. The leaves falling in your yard. You are a dynamic data set. You will gather yourself. Your Spotify playlists. Your Twitter timeline. What you like on Instagram and/or Reddit. The movies you watch (or haven't watched.) The books on your shelf or the cars you have own. The things that make you cry, or smile. In this class, we will collect it. We will be creative and generous and create a unique dataset that is a portrait of you.

Objectives

In this studio course, students will explore the phenomenon of big data on a small scale and identify opportunities to use personal data as an element of expressive visual communication. By harnessing the power of dynamically chaining content, students will craft persuasive, experiential, and experimental time-based narratives.

Content

Course content will be delivered in the form of short class lectures with example projects. Students will be required to prepare presentations of their process and participate in critiques.

Portfolio / Outcomes

Students will develop a concise body of process and work that demonstrates the unique making skills they’ve brought to the workshop. Painters, drawers, designers, motion media arts, typographers, and all visual media skills will be put on display in time-based media. Each student can specify their media and may run the gamut from high-fidelity prototypes to fully completed experiences.

Required Tools, Materials, Equipment & Software

The typical designer’s toolkit including materials for analog mark making and sketching. Plenty of paper and a pencil are enough to get started.

Fees

Participation in this workshop is free for students and 160NZD (approx. 95EUR / 115USD / 430PLN) for professionals. Have questions? Please email our event organiser at exhibition2021@motyf-festival.com.
