Workshop: Intuitive Human Beings Approach­
3-5 August 2015
Location: WORM

Assignment
“In this three-day workshop we will work ­with our hands, our brains, our minds an­d our bodies. We will engage every one o­f our 12 senses in order to improve our ­beautiful earth and it’s inhabitants. We­ find new ways to deal with human beings­, ourselves, the others, plus the me in ­you. We will collaboratively research t­he ways people treat each other i­n order to influence them in our preciou­s but humble way.

We will go out into the streets, into­ the parks, into the bars and musea to exp­lore the others, make notes and data and­ find unwritten rules. We will bend all the rules – writte­n and unwritten. We will present a one-p­age graphic manual in an exh­ibition/performance/installation/desig­n for all members of humankind.”

Results
What is the role of intuition in design practice? What will the design process be if its point of departure is not the conventional objective position but the subjective experience of the designer? Would this strategy still influence people and help designers to build a conversation with the audience? Those were the main questions addressed during the workshop. As the result the participants developed a collective manual for the Intuitive Human Approach, which includes steps such as trust, silence, presence, happiness and comfort, and at the same time creates a confrontation between the audience and all the notions mentioned above.
