Creative Web 2012/2013 – week 6

A summary of week 5 of the Creative Web module…

Introduction – general catch up

—————————————

We began by discussing some ideas around the final project and the content of last week’s session. The remainder of the session revolved around exercises to stimulate collaboration and ideas around the final project theme.

Creative Thinking – Stop Making Sense!
———————————————

We read and discussed Sol LeWitt’s 1965 letter to Eva Hesse.  The letter was printed in the NY based journal Art on Paper in 2005.

For those who are interested, starting points for more info on these artists and the magazine:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sol_LeWitt – Sol LeWitt
http://www.artonpaper.com/about_us/ – Art on Paper

So creative thinking is interdisciplinary…

Next week

————

Try to develop the ideas you have had around the stories we were creating in today’s session. Simplify them and think about how technology could be applied to them so that they could be told in a more interesting way… Next week we’ll be discussing these ideas and talking in general about project planning methods and tools.

Creative Web 2012/13 – week 3

Introduction
—————–
After catching up on introductions we looked at the DM courseblog and developed some fictional characters for use in the first assignment (which was also assigned). We then discussed the history of the internet and introduced the idea of web 2.0.

It was noted that the schedule (including some of the assignment deadlines) has been changed to reflect the session which was not held last week. Please use the online schedule (on the creative web page of the DM courseblog) for the avoidance of any doubt with regards to submission deadlines etc. If you are unsure contact Stevie for confirmation.
