Begum Aydinoglu: Sensuous Design - Algorithmic Thinking
To create sensory stimulation is one of the main ambitions of the design. Integration of algorithms to the process of design and design thinking improves the quality through human-machine collaboration. Asking key questions during the process of creation leads to success to create various sensories. These questions can find their answers in every scale including graphic design, product design, furniture design, architectural design, urban design and virtual-reality design.
Frederick Van Johnson: How to Make Learning and Curiosity a Lifestyle
Most (if not all) creative professions require a constant thirst to learn, stay current, get inspired, etc. Gone are the days of learning a craft, and honing a small set of skills over several years or decades. Today's creatives need to be nimble and constantly thirsty for knowledge. In this talk, we'll talk about some ways you can weave curiosity and learning into a lifestyle.
Gordon MacLellan: Finding Stories Everywhere
As an artist and storyteller, I draw on the world around me for my inspiration, using places I visit, scents, sounds, moments to inspire stories. Here, I’d like to talk about ways of letting nature inspire us; about relaxing, not worrying, not planning. Maybe this is “creative mindfulness” – a talk that isn’t about answers but about the questions we can ask and the freedom we can give ourselves to let our creativity grow from inside and outside us…. This then feeds those more personal questions: How does my creativity influence my life? When – and how - did I find that creativity? What do I do to keep myself being creative?
