This workshop includes an introduction to terms and definitions concerting man nature relations; including ecology, sustainability, the Anthropocene and post-Anthropocene. The course begins with projecting. In order to structurally include plural forms of understanding, the programme explores intuitive, artistic, technological and scientific directions, including the distinct methods particular to each. Intuitive “projective “works installed during the course’s opening workshop are important to explain personal relations to the sea and to forge or reexamine emotional ties. This is followed by researching the work of relevant contemporary artists and adapting their methods to course theme. Through this process, new ways of communicating critical issues and engaging the senses are opened up – some of which have direct influence on the final project direction. The artistic research serves as inspiration- the focus lies in the making of the student’s own interpretation.
One semester course will give credit of 30 ECTS, for one full year 60 ECTS. The student will have 2-3 different studio courses to choose between. The student then follows one topic, one course, one teacher the whole semester. In this course one will have integrated architecture, design, art, theory, construction etc. It all comes as one “package”, not split up into minor credits/units.
