a’21: Can wonders lead to other synergies?_amberPlatform
13. April 16:00 - 16. April 17:00
The workshop focuses on the aesthetics of the cumulative nature of information that is unlearned and relearned in a holistic, experience-oriented, democratic and de-colonialist manner, in which the practice travels around the theory and the mainstream meanings attached are questioned.
:: ABOUT THIS EVENT (EN/TR) ::
How can we shift from post-digital ignorance to post-digital wisdom? In this event, participants will create their own wonderland, on the basis of pandemic conditions we have been through for the last year. The proliferation of virtual applications, stiffening of the feeling of social isolation as technology pushes the limits, and the importance of questioning the accuracy of the information instead of directly accepting it, will be the subjects to be emphasised. The event will also include practices like questioning the (possible, probable and plausible) future(s) of a city where human-viruses and other creatures live by using design as a form of thought catalyser. Participants from other disciplines will be expected to produce poster designs in visual or text form, using their own design language.
