    Type: StudentWork
    Description/Abstract: UC SCHOOL OF ART MFA GRADUATING SHOW 2015 — TEXTS AND PROJECTS This collection of texts and images brings together the work of graduate students and faculty in art history, art education, and fine arts at the University of Cincinnati in the spring of 2015. We invited students in art education and art history to write accompanying texts for the final projects of their peers in the fine arts graduate program – projects encompassing everything from multimedia installation, abstract painting, video animation, fiber-based sculptural assemblages, photography, and drawing. The students’ projects were presented at the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, as part of the School of Art’s MFA Thesis Exhibition, which ran from April 1 and April 25, 2015. A process of looking, talking, looking again, writing, reading, and re-writing unfolded. Shorter versions of the texts were shown at the CAC alongside the artworks at the CAC. The process created a working space for artists and writers in dialogue, giving rise to new ideas and projects in turn. Morgan Thomas Vittoria Daiello [from Foreword] Design: Sso-Rha Kang

  2. Urban Planning in the Middle East: Analyzing Al-Tahrir Square as a Public-Political Space in Iraq

    707958516?file=thumbnail
    Type: Article
    Description/Abstract: Al-Tahrir Square, surrounded by commercial crowded streets, financial headquarters, and governmental institutions is one of the most iconic squares in Baghdad. It is part of daily life for many Iraqi people due to its central location, which is characterized by busy roads with honking cars. In this essay, I am going to explore Al-Tahrir Square in Baghdad, Iraq as a venue of rebellion for Iraqi people. Since 2015, Iraqi people from diverse backgrounds have been gathering in the square to protest for their rights every Friday. It has been the site of many historical events in Iraq although it has been established as a social place. I will explore the sociopolitical significance of Al-Tahrir Square by connecting the history of the place with how it has been changed since 1961 when the Freedom Monument was first open to the public. The research addresses the urban landscape of Al-Tahrir Square and its transformation over time, taking into consideration the political issues that affect it. I will analyze policies and regulations that have discouraged people from gathering in the Square to prevent political threats to the government and suggest ways to create safer spaces and mixed used attractions, modify the natural landscape of Al-Ummah Garden to make it more connected to the Square, and revitalize the existing kaleidoscope for closer proximity to Tigris River. Keywords: Al-Tahrir Square, Freedom monument, Al-Ummah Garden, Al-Rasheed Street, and urban planning Al-Tahrir Square has a complicated history. It was a parking lot in the 1950s, but in 1961, it use shifted and it became the location of the Freedom Monument. This shift marked AlTahrir Square as evidence of the Iraqi people’s journey of struggle and victory that designated it as a symbol of a new era of liberation from British colonialism. It has always been selected as a protest site because of its location in central Baghdad, especially in the past when it was the focal point for social gatherings. Besides being accessible from both Al-Karkh and Al-Rusafa, the two sides of Baghdad, through the highways and bridges that shorten the distance, the Square has had a long history of political demonstrations and has become a symbol for liberation, represented by the Freedom Monument.

  3. Investigating Ideation Flexibility through Incremental to Radical Heuristics

    W0892b97g?file=thumbnail
    Type: Article
    Description/Abstract: Ideation flexibility is the ability to shift between a designer’s preferred and non-preferred ways of generating solutions as required by the presented task. There are many tools that exist to support ideation; however, there is a lack of research defining how to facilitate ideation flexibility and how to support designers in this process through use of such tools. In this paper, we report on the development of a new tool, the "Incremental to Radical Heuristics" (I2Rh), which may provide inspiring prompts for ideation, ranging from more incremental to more radical examples. We tested the use of this I2Rh with a small set of industrial design and architecture students and aim to report on ways in which designers with varying cognitive styles perceive and apply these heuristics and further the impact of the heuristics on the students’ problem solving processes and ideation outcomes. Preliminary results demonstrate that more innovative students found the adaptive applications of the heuristics to trigger more novel solutions, whereas the more adaptive students found that the innovative applications to be more inspiring. Keywords: ideation tools, design heuristics, adaption-innovation theory Ideation is critical as it allows designers to form many diverse ideas to choose from and eventually test and validate them (Sheppard, Macatangay et al. 2009). However, in many cases, designers find it difficult to come up with many diverse ideas as a result of fixation they experience on particular ideas (Crilly 2015). Being a flexible designer means being able to move from one solution to another, in order to produce the most promising solutions for the given context. In this movement, idea generation methods play a critical role as facilitators of this movement while pushing designers to think differently (Silk, Daly et al. 2014). The focus of the proposed work is ideation flexibility (Yilmaz, Daly et al. 2014), defined as the ability to ideate in both incremental and radical ways – or, more precisely, to ideate along a continuum of thinking between the two, depending on the needs of the problem. Building on the theoretical foundation of Kirton’s adaption-innovation theory (Kirton 1976), we defined the ideation success as a designer’s ability to move between his/her preferred and nonpreferred ways of generating ideas as required in the design brief. To specifically target ideation flexibility, we took an empirically-driven and validated ideation tool, Design Heuristics (Yilmaz, Seifert et al. 2016), and modified it based on the Kirton’s adaptiveinnovative theory. This revised set, called the "Incremental to Radical Heuristics" (I2Rh), illustrates heuristics’ application both incrementally and radically to the same example design problem. I2Rh is intended to help designers execute an ideation strategy based on prompts, examples, and directions to incorporate more incremental or more radical changes to their naturally preferred ways of generating ideas, through facilitating flexible thinking. Our goal in this paper was to investigate how designers with different cognitive styles perceive and apply these revised heuristics and their impact on the students’ ideation outcomes.

  5. Design 3.0 - Open, Deep, Big: a New Design Paradigm for the Next Generation of Design Research, Practice, and Education

    Vd66w000m?file=thumbnail
    Type: Article
    Description/Abstract: IASDR 2017 Workshop Design now faces with new challenges that have made us rethink about our current design paradigm. It motivated us to organize a forum called, Design 3.0 Forum at KAIST in 2016, where we invited globally renowned design researchers and practitioners from different countries to discuss about important agenda for emerging challenges. The agenda we extracted from this forum can be summarized as follows: 1) envisioning of designers' future roles on open creativity and design; 2) dissemination and evaluation of design research outcomes by keeping deep design values; and 3) post education and practice that moves beyond the current use-centered perspectives by thinking big toward social innovation and large-scale impact. As the result of the Design 3.0 forum, we all agreed that we must continue to develop and extend these agenda and collaboratively make executable actions to carry them out in the design community. In this special session at IASDR 2017, not only the organizers of the previous Design 3.0 forum (i.e. Youn-kyung Lim, Ron Wakkary, Kun-pyo Lee, and Tek-jin Nam), we invite the people who have not participated in the previous forum but can provide important insights on these issues. For the format of the session, we will take the panel format where the invited participants will present their positions first, and then have in-depth discussion on them among the participants and the audience. Through this special session, we expect to advance the initial Design 3.0 agenda and can generate more concrete and executable action items for Design 3.0. Please follow developments of this work at  http://design3-0.org/2017iasdr/

  9. Architecture Speaks in Unintelligible Tongues: Deleuze’s Empiricism, Subjectivity, and Ethics of Integrative Education

    9z902z95v?file=thumbnail
    Type: Article
    Description/Abstract: This presentation suggests a new transversal image of thought to grasp the creation of an ethical series of events in which architectural history/theory coursework engages in multi-educational rhizomatic ‘plateaus’. It does so by combining the philosophies and notions of impersonality and effects of French post-structuralist Gilles Deleuze, with that of Simone Brott (an Australian architect), as the basis for a cartographic analysis of the empirical subjectivity that works as a set of impersonal effects to reformulate the architectural history/theory coursework.
