Students and teachers of LaSalle College Jakarta were glad to have 2 learning sessions by Gaston Lisak & Nicole Vindel. The classes were attended by nearly 40 students and teachers of Digital Media Design, Interior Design, and Fashion Business departments.
Mr. Lisak, an LCI Barcelona teacher, and Ms. Vindel are a tandem (duo) of design researcher and artists that share their passion about people. Mr. Lisak’s research include, the use of technology to enhance human interaction for Ericsson, rethinking new exhibition spaces for El Bulli foundation and visualizing and optimizing creative process for clothing brand Desigual. He has also exhibited at Gallery Bensimon, Beijing Design Week and Salone del Mobile among others. While Ms. Vindel design research include, development of advanced materials for Materfad, discovering new ways of interaction and user experience at the high cuisine for "el Celler de Can Roca" and mechanical design at the Innovation Nacelle Department.
The first session was a Masterclass titled Random Happiness Manifesto. It’s lecture session with case studies where the participants could be familiar with different techniques related to human interaction and the usage of technology to connect people. The speakers also showed some videos of research they did in the past and the result.
The second session “Selfie, Ergo Sum” was a workshop for a maximum 20 people. The participants were given cases to work in a small group on how to co create to find new ways of interaction, especially in the recent selfie era.
We thank both speakers for sharing their knowledge and experience to LaSalle College Jakarta academic community.
