    Asia Summer Joint Design Workshop 2014 1. Introduction Through the support of the Eco Culture Design Agency, Yonsei University Division of Design and Art students were able to participate in the\ ‘Summer Joint Design Workshop 2014’ at Chiba University, Japan. The schools that participated are as follows: Yonsei University (Korea), Seoul National University (Korea), Tsinghua University (China), National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan), and Chiba University (Japan). Six students from various majors such as Industrial design and Engineering from each University participated in the workshop. 2.Schedule The workshop lasted 5 days and 4 nights starting July 14th, 2014 located on the Chiba University campus. Most project participation was engaged on campus with the exceptions of observations and market research. From time restraints, projects were composed outside of the scheduled daily programs.   3. Process The workshop process was similar to the design process of a professional design approach.   4. Workshop Content Day 1: – University introductions and ice-breaking activity – Team establishing and Theme Announcement – Team meeting: brainstorming Day 2: – Team meeting: define problem, case study research, brainstorming Day 3: – Team meeting: troubleshooting direction establishment, ideation, observation – Overall progress presentation Day 4: – Team meeting: prototyping, developing presentation – Overall progress presentation Day 5: – Final development – Final Presentation Each year, the workshop process is conducted by group project participation. The theme for this workshop was ‘sound interaction for 3 or more participants’. Individual team activities were conducted without time restraints and professional lectures and workshop activities were conducted on schedule. Teams were established so students from various nationalities could have an opportunity to work together. Instead of having a strict schedule and monitoring, students were able to work on the projects and had an opportunity to present progress with other teams at the end of each day.  

Special Seminar – Aalto University Marja Seliger

05/24/2015
Special Seminar –  Aalto University Marja Seliger ‘What is a thesis in the fields of ART, DESIGN?’ Title: Design Education in Aalto ARTS Speaker: Prof. Marja Seliger / Aalto University Time/Date: 2015 4 16 9:00 Location: Cheong-song Hall, Room 477 <Summary> Professor Marja ‪Seliger‬ from Aalto University visited Yonsei University. She explained the education process in Finland and described the design program and graduate thesis processes at Aalto University. University education in Finland follows the EU education pattern of 3 + 2 + 4. Professor Seliger expressed that students in the Master’s program apply acquired research knowledge and skills to 1 of 3 thesis topics; Artistic research, Theoretical research and Production-based research. The Artistic research process consists of an art-philosophic focus and reflection from a subjective position. Artistic research is conducted through discovery, sociological connections and artistic production. Completion of artwork/design and a written component at the end of the thesis process are required. Instead of objective explanation, the goal is to understand the world in the interpretive or participatory sense. Stating a problem and design thinking from a constructivist position forms the Product-based research. Through this problem-solving approach, students conduct exploration, reflection and implementation research. This field is based on the interest of product and service design. Documented production and a written component are required. The goal is the articulation of how art and design expertise are developed. From an objective position, theoretical research stems from a research question and hypothesis. Students research methodological approaches and generate a theory. A written thesis is required for graduation candidacy. The goal is to understand the natural world, society and consumer with an objective explanation. Written thesis is required, but the length varies upon which research topic is chosen.   <Seminar content summary> Apply unique design and present it in the best way The research is based on previous case studies – Types of Thesis studies: ARTISTIC, THEORETICAL PRODUCTION-BASED REASEARCH – Goals of the thesis are based on the person’s interests. The student chooses a topic of interest à previous case study research à contemplating reason for research à Theoretical research Objective research experiments based on research hypothesis personal life, space, expression of who “I” am Ex) anna kalso Artistic research : art research – starting from theoretical basis – Internal thought, experience, fundamentally and philosophically solve the ART process Describe the environment as a writer Ex) Lauri Ahonon : Little Jaybird Ex) Lauri Ahonon : Little Jaybird The development of visual storytelling through comic book Ex) Emmi Jormalainen : KOTIC(Homes) Ex) Nelli Palomaki : Unconforotable Portrait 16 sketches to describe a house Ex) Varpu Eronen : Meidan Salama (story of being struck by lightning) Expression of painful experiences through writing and photography.
