In an intensive week, we covered working with Data, Image Editing, Audio Editing, Coding and Visualisation and set out to created 3D immersive augmented experience. The range of Digital Creativity Tools we trialled was huge.
With an emphasis on getting the students to play with data, I based much of my thinking on the idea of Brian Eno
and his book, The Vertical Colour of Sound.
In the book there are some insightful common sense ideas, including:
"For the world to be interesting, you have to be manipulating it all the time.”
"As soon as you externalise an idea you see facets of it that weren’t clear when it was just floating around in your head."
“The more time you spend on an old idea, the more energy you invest in it, the more solid it becomes, and the more it will exclude new ideas.”
