‘WALKING IN THE UNKNOWN PATHS’: AN EXPERIMENTAL CURRICULUM

N. Balkir Kuru

Kadir Has University, Art and Design Faculty (TURKEY)
How can we build a sense of perception through observing the ‘seen’ and the ‘unseen’ dimensions of the city? How can we perceive the living spaces with time and space in mind and capture the hidden meanings in the unknown paths of our city? How can we have the students to input the imaginary and observatory findings, and have them to read complex relations? What images there to find and pull out in understanding the realities of the living spaces hidden in the fragments of the daily life? How is the architectural, visual, and environmental memory can be linked with the current reality? How can a course curriculum be built around these questions in mind? The paper is an attempt to present how nature/culture/city may prompt the sensual side of students in various exercises and projects in a course, and to understand how knowledge can be gained through reading complex relations in living spaces. The course projects, designed to have students see and read the city and to enable them to search for the relations between what is seen and what is not, will be presented. It is overall aimed at providing insights into possibilities in the art and design pedagogy and in building creative thinking. Such creative thinking processes as applied to drawing, design and other disciplines, and the relationships between words, objects and memory in mixed media drawings will be explored.
