During this term on a thursday afternoon I will be attending a series of lectures entitles key concepts in art and communication. My first lecture was just a brief overview of what we was going to be looking at over the next few weeks. Most people see design for just its visual qualities but these lectures will make me look at the ideas and concepts behind the aesthetics. Understanding why design has been made I feel is very important. Design contains so much information, meaning and history that I am interested in learning and exploring.
We looked at the idea of “theory” we discussed how it was a set of ideas that make sense of our experience of the world.
1.a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained.”
