City Vibration – an “Experiment of Totality”
Based on the ideas and elementary principles of Moholy-Nagy.
Design Workshop / Theory and Practice
Jan. 9th – Jan. 13th
Artist, designer and educator László Moholy-Nagy, developed design principles and didactics for multimedia time-based design which today can be viewed as an early model for designing experiences rather than objects. The 5 day workshop with students from the Industrial Design BA and MA programs focused on Moholys practice to communicate ideas by multiple means of expression and followed Moholy-Nagy’s ideals to study the human condition using artistic means. The city was the inspirational source for the students to express the “Vibration”, the energy, the story, and the emotions of a location of their choice through a sculpture using spatial arrangement, material, light, motion and sound.
