Designing again!


I had an early start yesterday ... gave a lecture to Design students at QUT who are doing an interesting project on SLOW Design this semester ... exploring design and the senses ... culminating in them designing a restaurant /function space which reflects principles of slow food and slow design. I rather fancy having a go at that myself... cafe ideas have often floated around my mind over the years!'

The senses was a great topic to speak on... and funny how sometimes a task one is given leads to insights about one's work.... timely reminders!
I've taught over many years re the importance of connecting with all the senses when creating, adding to intellectual, feeling and intutitive approaches for finding ones way with material. I chose 70 slides... one's from the recent Pecha Kucha evening and added onto that... filling out gaps in the story and seeing the value of adding thoughts I've not focused on in a while. What a was a fantastic opportunity.

I'm now working out details for this event below ... this is the unfinished draft for the invite to a springtime WEEKEND ART SALE at my home ... of course all part of the funding initiative tor the coming trip. Wish you could all come... even those of you in very far-away places!

ps I noticed at tumblr tonight an image of mine had been posted and when I took a look there was a message...and it was someone who was at the lecture yesterday. She'd left me a wonderful message and was suggesting  people visit my blog and such. It was so heart warming somehow... thanking me for my time. They were wonderful... really great chats at the end.  
Thanks Hanya!
