donderdag 24 mei | tools for creativity
Heather Hopfl (http://www.essex.ac.uk/afm/staff/hopfl.shtm)

Between Behaviour and Representation
Lecture on how organizations learn, produce and create meanings through imagery, artefacts and staging.
Heather Höpfl is Professor of Management at the University of Essex


This presentation examines how organizations learn, produce and create meanings through imagery, artefacts and staging. It will use Disney as an example of meaning creation but will also consider illustrations from a range of other organizations such as Southwest Airlines, British Airways and McDonalds. The presentation will consider different aspects of organizational culture and will look at examples of visible aspects of culture. It will look at the ways in which these are produced and managed. The aesthetic interpretation of organizational behaviour will be considered in relation to what the creation of organization might mean in this context. The theatre of organizations is part of this production of meaning. A further aspect of this is concerned with how the analysis of organization can be seen in the context of both vision and blindness and what it means to speak of abocular (Out of the eye, see http:// www.derridathemovie.com/comment-1.html) vision. I will provide a theoretical context for a series of exercises which look at inference and meaning; at inferential readings of organizational imagery and its meaning; and at the relationship between images of organization and its significance to any such interpretation. It is intended that the exercises will draw attention to a range of different interpretative issues such as the significance of the standpoint, the relationship between rule and role, the accumulative characteristics of inference and so forth.

Heather Höpfl is Professor of Management at the University of Essex. She is an organizational psychologist and has worked with a range of organizations including ICL, the Dept of Social Security, British Telecomm, British Airways, and in mental hospitals and prisons. She is currently undertaking research with Southwest Airlines. She has published extensively on organizational symbolism and aesthetics including The Aesthetics of Organization with Stephen Linstead and is the editor of Culture of Organization. She is a former chair of SCOS, The Standing Conference of Organizational Symbolism and has been a regular convenor of the EGOS standing stream on the Philosophy of Management with Stephen Linstead for six years. She gave a Keynote Address at the SCMOI conference in Las Vegas in 2007 entitled, Master and Convert: on women and other strangers. She is married to Harro Höpfl and has two children, George and Max.

donderdag 31 mei | visies op design
Theodore Watson (www.muonics.net), David Kousemaker (www.blendid.nl) en Tim Olden (www.blendid.nl)


Onder de titel 'Visies op design' organiseert Media Guild een serie seminars waarin uiteenlopende visies op media design en media technologie centraal staan.
Aan bod komen verschillende benaderingen van webdesign, game design, spatial design: de stad als interface, tangible interfaces, locative games, etc.
Mediagilde nodigt voor ieder seminar een designer uit die vanuit diens visie op design een programma samen stelt.


Het seminar is samen gesteld door Theodore Whatson in samenwerking met Mediagilde. Theodore was onder andere verbonden aan Ars Electronica (A) en Eyebeam (USA). Hij maakt deel uit van de Graffiti Research Lab, waarbinnen hij “Interactive architecture”, “Laser Tag” en “KPN Façade” mee ontwikkelde.
Recentelijk werkte Theodore in de USA aan de interactieve expositie rond het werk van Michel Gondry.
