Back from Breda NHTV

Last week I was in Breda in Holland at NHTV University of Applied Sciences giving a guest lecture and holding a workshop on wearables and research through making.

It was great. What a lovely friendly and engaging campus!

Thank you very much to Dr Licia Calvi and Paul Buchanan who run the Interactivity course for making myself and another guest lecturer so very welcome. Here’s to many more collaborations!

Here’s a collage of some of the photographs I took while the workshop was going on.

Students were asked to take some paper and start to fold it and see where they got to. Some of the colour combinations are excellent and the contrasts worked very well. It was a leap of faith as these student mainly work in digital media. At the end of 1 hour they were asked to communicate their results with the other participants which for some had some fantastic concepts attached.

Playing really is valuable for stimulating your ideas factory that can lie dormant in your mind!
