Advice and suggestions

Starting point: design as a diary – a balanced lifestyle

Middle work: how to build or visualize a personal story

Wrap up of project 2:

own history, material, aesthetic agency

not limitied to utilitarian, open to “a thing” extended in design, series of things.

proposisional making. [space of yourself space define your aesthetics]

allow yourself to make 3dimentional composition-sculptural

develop something that is conceptually narratively aesthetically rich -> build meaning on it

integration of utilitarian, aesthetic, maker perspective

using these tools – body movement, how it feels, control of the materials

ecology of myself, ecology of a maker

repligate the natual form of wood

break the geometric brick of the utilitarian design works, breaking the formality

reflect on the tool and body of yourself, how this tool is working with your body.

what’s the body asking you to do with that material

physical pleasure in the sound, feeling

irregularity of the natural form

flow state – finishing things in a comforatble state,In positive psychology, a flow state, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting transformation in one’s sense of time.
