Often we look for inspiration, but ideation and exploration is a far more efficient way of coming up with ideas. Through Iteration and using unpredictable techniques, Fiona McGuigan will guide the students through a process that can feel chaotic, and a little scary. Why? To be able to find new imagery, and push your work from representation in to abstraction, loss of control and quantity is key. This process differs from the linear, quality-based processes that we are more familiar with, being able to "let go" of the final “perfect” piece can be hard. But following an idea generates creativity and leads to more innovative work!
