Methodologies for 2nd workshop

Methodologies for 2nd workshop

Next workshop will be at Caledonian Road with a local community group and I may only have 3hours for whole process, so the procedure should be squashed from the previous study at the Japanese high school.

Here are the draft of steps for the workshop.

1. Briefing in advance (email + PDF) + Ask participants to bring pictures about their favourite places in their local area in advance.

2. Then begin with an exhibition to share their thoughts about the area. – 20 mins

3. Get them into groups based on their interested places. – 10 mins

4. Think about the future expectation of chosen places. (Quick sketches) 30 mins

5. Visit the actual chosen area and collect other’s opinion with their sketches and photos – 30 mins

6. Put themselves into the story, imagining a day in the future in 10 years. *Context will be provided, economic, climate, political and technological background.

Elements for storyboarding

1. Perspective

2. Dividing scenes by landmarks?

Reference – “Japanese Emakimono” uses clouds or fog to change the scenes. Emakimono is a horizontal, illustrated narrative form created during the 11th to 16th centuries in Japan. Emaki-monocombines both text and pictures, and is drawn, painted, or stamped on a hand scroll. What makes emaki special is the intertwined visual and written narrative that could be of potential infinite length.

- showing scenes of incidents that happened at different times in one picture – continuous narrative

- the compositional technique used to depict a residential interior, which involves rendering a building without a roof and ceiling so that the viewer looks inside from above.

- Over-look composition, to express personae’s daily activity objectively, and to express buildings(landmarks) and personae same time.

- 右から左への方向性を示しつつ、すでに巻き取られた右側(見終わった画面)は過去、目の前の絵が現在、そしてこれから開かれる左手の中(まだ見えない画面)に未来がある。(an audience supporsed to observe Emakimono from left(past) to right(future))












3. Ask participants that what are the striking landmarks in their locals.
