Organizational Aesthetics

Abstract

In September 2017 Room 2084 was installed at London College of Communication (LCC) to display a selection of objects from the personal archives and collections of staff and students in the Design School during the London Design Festival.

The aim of this display was to examine the role such objects play in the research and practice of the school and how these relate to the collection policies of the institution’s archives and special collections. To this end ‘trials’ were held throughout the duration of the show where members of staff would ‘defend’ their objects to a ‘jury’ who ...

Design For Steam: Creating Participatory Art With Purpose, Nick Kamienski, Nicole M. Radziwill Mar 2019

Design For Steam: Creating Participatory Art With Purpose, Nick Kamienski, Nicole M. Radziwill

The STEAM Journal

Innovation is simultaneously reflected in the variety and diversity of art. Over the past century, art forms have progressed along a continuum from static to dynamic, and then to interactive and participatory. The therapeutic value of creating and engaging in all of these art forms has also been identified. Furthermore, educators have recognized the profound value of art and design within the context of scientific and technical learning, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) has emerged as an educational philosophy with a strong base of support. This paper defines and articulates participatory elements of STEAM projects, and provides ...


Fake Or Visual Trickery? Understanding The Quantitative Visual Rhetoric In The News, Rohit Mehta, Lynette Deaun Guzmán Nov 2018

Fake Or Visual Trickery? Understanding The Quantitative Visual Rhetoric In The News, Rohit Mehta, Lynette Deaun Guzmán

Journal of Media Literacy Education

In online and video/television spaces, news media discourses incorporate multimodal design as a discursive move capable of steering meaning toward desirable implications. Around the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, while polarized news outlets made their positionality on the candidates obvious, more neutral or central news outlets revealed their preferences through subtle multimodal design choices. One of these design choices is using a quantitative visual rhetoric: persuasive multimodal moves that draw on quantification through visual, spatial, and textual manipulation—involving the choice of data representation, visual images, and illustrations, (im)balance between numeric and alphabetic texts, and general quantitative narrative ...


The Perioperative Patient Experience Of Hand And Wrist Surgical Patients: An Exploratory Study Using Patient Journey Mapping, Else F. De Ridder, Tessa Dekkers, Jarry T. Porsius, Gerald Kraan, Marijke Melles Nov 2018

The Perioperative Patient Experience Of Hand And Wrist Surgical Patients: An Exploratory Study Using Patient Journey Mapping, Else F. De Ridder, Tessa Dekkers, Jarry T. Porsius, Gerald Kraan, Marijke Melles

Patient Experience Journal

Patient-centred care is becoming more important in healthcare. The success of patient-centred care can be assessed by exploring the patient experience through a patient journey map. As the number of outpatient surgeries is increasing, it is important to reveal the specific characteristics of this type of surgery. The perioperative patient experience is considered very important for outpatient surgery, because all perioperative activities are condensed in one day. To investigate this experience, we performed a case study of hand and wrist surgery. Six teams of two industrial design engineering students interviewed 40 patients in total in two private and two public ...

3d Printing – An Insider’S Perspective, Siddharth Sah Dec 2017

3d Printing – An Insider’S Perspective, Siddharth Sah

The STEAM Journal

The 3D printing market globally is still at its infancy, - or some might argue that there isn’t really a market yet. The knowledge of 3D printing design is still largely limited to engineering design – not product design. At MakeWhale, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of the application of 3D printing technology to consumer products resulting in a beautiful mix of technology and art.

The Learning Home: An Ethnographic Case-Study Of Curriculum, Place, And Design, Asavari Thatte

Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education

An overemphasis on exams or tests marks the present educational scenario in India (Majumdar & Mooij, 2011; Mehrotra, 2007) and the United States (Eisner, 2002; Noddings, 2003; Pinar, 2004; Schubert, 2010). The mainstream schooling system in India disregards the student’s individual needs, abilities, and lived realities (Sarangapani, 2003; Thapan, 2015). My experience of schooling in a mainstream school in India was marked by a sense of monotony, boredom, disengagement, and drudgery. The search for a pedagogical site where the students’ experiences differ from mine motivates this research.

The Learning Home, an alternative school in Pune, India, is a pedagogical site where every ...

Feminist Theory And Technical Communication, Olivia Duffus

Channels: Where Disciplines Meet

This essay explores feminism, socially-constructed norms, and the relationship between feminism and technical communication. It argues that undergraduate technical communication programs should include courses that study feminist history and theories as related to the field, claiming that studying feminist theory will improve user-centered design and broaden students' spheres of influence as professionals.

With America slowly awakening to the need to turn out creative and innovative workers who can join the 21st century (its already 2012) workplace -- because they have the new thinking skills --we have to change the current emphasis on STEM, for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to STEAM, by insuring that the whole brain is nurtured through the arts: thus STEAM.
