Course Content (Syllabus)
'Critical Images' constitute a field for research on image, theory and criticism. They attempt to articulate creative and compositional routes, bidirectionally, between image and design. Image in this course is considered as a compositional event, able to polarize information and codify it into cognitive, perceptive body. Representation, drawing, artistic compositions, curated photography, printing are indicative version of a critical image's primal matter. The image's relation with design is activated in the fields of geometry, form reconstruction, typological elements, textures and surfaces, styles, cultural and social background, context, communication range, interfaces with social media, etc. A series of lectures will be taking place throughout the course, examining the complex, bidirectional, organic relation between image and architectural design. A broad array of scales will be addressed, ranging from objects, artworks, decorative elements, landscape, building and the city.
