Launch 2

Coming Soon:

We’re doing a London launch of the Think Twice Before You Think publication this coming Saturday. Its part of the fantastic Anti-University Now festival.

The launch will be followed by a roundtable discussion around the proposition of setting-up a new design school. This school could take many forms, durations and/or iterations. We will outline a proposal or construct a ‘Baugespann’*, against which ideas, objections and declarations of intent can be voiced.

Venue: Lerryn’s, 200 Rye Lane, London SE15 4NF

Date: Sat 21 November

Time: 6-8pm

Think Twice Before You Think: L(a)unch

You are invited to the most low-key launch event of the century*.

Part publication launch, part me sitting in the Vic eating my lunch, the l(a)unch of ‘Think Twice Before You Think’ will take place on Monday 26th October, between 1 and 2pm. We’ll have 70 copies available, on a first come first served basis, and the project is also available to view at thinktwicebeforeyouthink.org.

The pamphlet is an outcome of one of last years Feral Studio workshops and discussion groups called ‘Inside Out School’, run by Sophie Dyer, Antonia Brell (who edited and designed the publication), Thom Swann and Rosie Everleigh. It contains reflections on that project, alongside articles, resources and references on modes of art and design education.

* Featuring:

– No Talks
– Background Music
– PARP (Participatory And Radical Pedagogy)
– My Lunch

If, Then

Thanks to everyone who contributed to *If,Then.* – a week of workshops, talks and performances examining interaction design.

A full list of events can be found here, and images from some of the events can be viewed here.

Feral Past, Present, Future

Update on recent and future activities, with some excellent resources thrown in.

An excellent resource from Lizzie Malcolm who ran the patterns and parameters workshop is available online here, with a timeline of the work produced, alongside research reference points and template scripts. (You can also see some images of the public event, courtesy of Kirstin Kerr). Meanwhile, workshop 002 with Nik Roy is underway, and later this evening there’ll be a public event at the Lighthouse. Next week we look forward to welcoming Europa for a workshop, followed by a talk with Robert and Mia from Europa and David Bellingham at South Block. Then it’s a long winter break until we’re back on Garnethill.

Less Straight-Talking

Support, updates, and a quick preview.

A new term, and we’re pleased to announce that the Design School at GSA are continuing to fund the Feral Studio project, with additional support from Front Page. That means that over the next few weeks, we’ll be announcing details of this terms events, including workshops, talks and events, with LustLab, Momus, Niklas Roy, and Europa.

While Feral Studio has always, in our own imagination at least, been cross-discipline, this year the events have a more explicitly cross-design agenda. Workshops are open to students across the design school at GSA, and our evening events are open to both students, practitioners and the public-at-large. There may, or may not, be less straight talks.

More to follow.
