A nice eclectic mix of designers, my fellow students. A designer of covers for classical music CDs who believes there is no future in classical music CDs, but who knows there’s a lot of interesting stuff to do with in classical music. An animator who wants to work on huge films, but who doesn’t really want to cooperate. People interested in solving environmental issues, people interested in smart cities. We all have completely different fields of interest. The thing we have in common is the fact that we’re all back to school again.
Today was the kickoff of the Master Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, my new school for the next two years. The kickoff was done by Sietske Klooster who has worked on a project called Melksalon. A few years ago she found out that milk, like wine, has terroir, and ever since she has been working hard on promoting the idea that milk should not be produced and consumed in bulk, but should be treated as a unique product. A very inspiring talk, especially for people like me and my fellow students who are about to start working on their own niche for the next two years.
I will blog about my own research right here, if you don’t mind.
