The interdisciplinary, cross cultural, interactive project „Design is Music is Design – European United!“ (2019), initiated by Prof. Dr. Marina-Elena Wachs, is shaping an inter- and transdisciplinary design process and education space together with other cultures in Europe.
Beside the didactic effort, the aim is to come to sense full smart and sustainable solutions with the help of synesthetic effects: Design- and Engineering and Management concepts will be sketched for the post-digital area, together with experts and students in a non hierarchical structure.
Together in this cross cultural education and working space, with experts from different design and engineering (scientific) fields, innovative valuable objects and processes are creating new design languages, forming design differences.
We have to ask for the term “industry” and the usage about, within the fourth (digital) industrial revolution, and we have to discuss the post-digital conditions for human beings, considering the phenomena of De-Industrialisation. What about the life conditions of a non-material world tomorrow? Which kind of identities and demands will be signed by man-machine-concepts tomorrow? Who wants to define the next cultural heritage of a non-material world?
How could we take benefit from looking at our cultural heritage in each nation of European regions, and how could we take profit for people and our planet by working and thinking and sketching and painting and playing together in one creative act... what about the significance of the „creative industry“ in 2040?
„Design is music is design“ means researching new patterns, motives, rhythms in design, transforming and shaping music into new languages, connecting, touching women beside, next to you, you!
Within this frame a design method of an „interactive tangible aesthetic design tool“, will be discussed by the design researcher Marina-Elena Wachs (Hochschule Niederrhein, Mönchengladbach, Germany) and Ashley Hall (RCA London, UK) to focus on advanced design skills of our talents and experts of tomorrow.
„Mind no Gap! ... in European design education in design / engineering / management...
Listen to the design talents and experts...
