At a time where boundaries are blurred and things unfamiliar, we’re grappling our way through media unfamiliar and unchartered. We’re lost. Feelings of fear, isolation, and even panic set in as we grapple with strategies for making our way out of out situations. Yet what is often overlooked is the simple value of being out of one’s element. With being lost comes increased awareness, heightened perspective, and the potential for experience. John Dewey described this as “having an experience,” writers describe it as “being objective,” and designers describe it as “getting perspective.”
This workshop teaches intentional strategies for gaining perspective—the same strategies one might use when you get lost—giving you insight and critical perspective. Take that perspective back to your work so you can achieve a fresh and close way of viewing the world.
