Event Details

Tools influence everything we do with them. While we accept this for hammers and violins, it is sometimes difficult to acknowledge this for our own creative work. But it is right in front of us: the method of sketching will affect your drawings: either you draw what you're thinking or you don't. Your analysis of form will influence the direction of a project: either you isolate a problem or you don't. The software you select will make things possible (the advertised features) but it also forces you in the mold of the features it doesn't have. The negative space of missing features. Taking control of tools means a degree independence in design. It also means a lot more work. But that's what we're here for.
