Making Things Up: Fiction as Prototype with Alice Twemlow, David Womack, and Noam Toran, July 14–20, FRANCE
Join SVA D-Crit program director and design critic Alice Twemlow, writer and R/GA executive creative director of mobile and social platforms David Womack, and artist and Design Interactions senior lecturer Noam Toran for a week-long immersion into fiction, as read through the lens of design. Participants are invited to use design and designed objects to inspire and animate fictional and critical writing, and fictional techniques to inform and shape design practice. Bring your works-in-progress, or use a week in the grounds of the glorious Boisbuchet chateau to begin something fresh. This workshop offers the intensity of the production and the seclusion of a writer/designer retreat, but hopefully also the new perspective on one’s everyday practice and the clarity of thought that only comes with distance from one’s desk.
