ELISAVA takes part this week in the Digital Design Weekend, encounter of artists, designers, engineers, technologists and the public to celebrate and share contemporary digital art and design. The event, which coincides with the London Design Festival and is part of the V&A Engineering Season, will take place at V&A Museum, the world's leading museum of Art and Design that this is its sixth year in the initiative.
ELISAVA takes part in the Digital Design Week with the Open Design Workshop series, a interactive installation co-created by design and engineering students Ágota SzK, Alberto Martínez, Claire Romain, Èlia Bagó, Ignacio Ezcurra, Juan Ezcurra, Judit Parés, Marta Fernandéz and Miquel Cardiel.
Collaborative action made in ELISAVA
The project is coordinated by Arianna Mazzeo, Content Director of the Master’s Degree in Design and Communication of ELISAVA, with the tutors of the senior mentors, creatives and researchers Ramón Faura, Saúl Baeza (Hunch) and Dr. Albert Fuster, Academic Director of the School, as well as having the media partnership of Lottarox Agency.
Within this framework, the interactive installation “Problem & Solutions Department of The Global Mind” is the metaphorical experience of how an individual dialogue with yourself joins everyone else´s thoughts, transforming into an infinite collaborative action based on the global values of open culture.
The website of the Open Design Workshop (www.opendesignworkshop.eu) is the digital realization of the same: an open database of the problems, solutions and the connections between them on the base of the empathy and collaboration process of the cognitive system and people mind. A new novel approach to think about design as inclusive and critical way of opportunity.
