Tilting to Transform. Sensorial problem-framing

Noemi Sadowska, Tara Hanrahan

London College of Communication, University of the Arts London, United Kingdom

This workshop will engage participants in a sequence of individual and group activities that utilise real and fictional sensorial modalities to reimagine problems and humanise design thinking. The 60 minutes online session will experiment with sensory scenarios and how they can enhance reframing and responsibly ‘tilt’ design problems and approaches, leading also to engaging participants in a discourse on the role of design within society and ecology. This workshop stems from wider research being undertaken into a system of teaching interventions that positively disrupt the curriculum, to catalyse and reinforce learning around design action and eco-social consequence. As such, this session seeks to explore creative and humanity-centred pedagogic approaches for reframing design problems and supporting responsible ideation.

The workshop will take place via Zoom, with the number of spaces limited to 20 and participants will need to be able to access Google documents provided during the workshop to contribute.
