Today’s blog link is Alex on Trails, the photography and travel blog of 2013 BA Design graduate Alexander Duffner (who was previously featured on the Design blog with his graduation project Domestic Science Machines). In his latest blog post, Alex gives some good advice on how less may well be more when it comes to photography.
Today’s random blog link is The Algorithm, a development diary for a project by Leon Eckert, third year BA Design student. Leon is creating a dance performance based on genetic algorithms- read his blog to find out how he’ll get there.
If you’re looking for an entertaining read today, we may have an adequate suggestion: MA in Design Education student Lili Golmohammadi is exploring the origins of the word “slag” (mostly known today as a very British insult), as part of her research into the materiality of language. Lili’s website “Slagipedia” includes definitions, uses of the word in advertising and pop culture and even an opera song about it!
(And if you want to know more about Lili, you can re-read our interview with her).
