KURZSCHLUSS - MAKE IT

Winter 2020 / 2021, 1st semester project
in cooperation with Sarah Böttger

In "Kurzschluss," students are confronted with new tasks and free project work every two weeks. The works created during this time testify to an intensive, diverse and exciting first semester. Due to pandemic conditions Sarah Böttger and me developed the format MAKE IT, in close collaboration with the workshop leaders, a combination of workshop introduction and design exercises. The workshop leaders supervised the students on site, the design processes were digitally accompanied by Sarah Böttger and me. The interplay of belly - hand - head - computer is a basic principle in PD studies at BUW and is tried out and lived in the Kurzschluss and especially in the workshop weeks.

METAL WORKSHOP - Help it!

Based on two terms, an everyday metal helper was designed and implemented in the metal workshop using adequate processes. The interplay of idea and feasibility in the material was intensively tested.

FIBRE FORMS

Winter 2019 / 2020, 3rd - 8th semester project
artistic assistant: Susann Paduch (Design M.A.)

Partner:
Becker Brakel
Filzfabrik Fulda

As a project module, the Fibre Forms course dealt with design, technical, organisational and critical-analytical procedures in an action-oriented work and innovation context.

It was about experimenting with the non-woven material and developing products in potentially new areas of application. 

Accompanying the product design, the material and process were critically scrutinised, challenges on topics such as circular design, as well as the connections between modularity and sustainability were discussed and methodically reviewed in expert interviews and workshop formats.

LOOPING MATERIAL

Summer 2018, 3rd - 8th semester project
Together with Steffen Herm (Design M.A.)

Guests:  Ideen labor BSR (Frieder Söling)Susanne Ritzmann (DRL Berlin)

This course not only looks for new applications for waste materials as a material and object, but also works on a contemporary recycling aesthetics. The microcosm UDK is to be understood as an image of a much larger problem. Part of the task is also to check the scalability of your own experimental idea.
