繪圖說故事


「繪圖說故事」本課程的重點是學習如何藉由自己所畫的圖畫說一個故事。在這個過程中,我們透過批判性思考,與密切觀察現實世界,來發展自己成為藝術家。整個課程下來,學生有機會從創作者的角度,能更了解自己,同時也能學習如何觀察、表達和描述。
一堂課2.5小時,分成三個部分: 人物畫、故事發展與整併。
在「人物畫」的部分, 我們輪流擔任模特兒用炭筆畫人物畫、人的面部表情、與絨毛動物玩具,目的是訓練觀察力,與抓出比例,怎麼準確抓住細微的實像。我們也同時學習如何以批判的眼光,來看待自己與他人的作品,藉以彼此相互協助發展自己。
在「故事發展」的部分我們探討情感表達及不同手勢所傳達的意義,我們也磨練講故事的技巧和策略。進入「整併」的過程時,我們會把當天所學,整併創造成一個成品。這麼做幫助我們重新整理當天的經歷。課程結束前,我們會進入一個更大的任務,也就是色彩的運用。藝術作品中,不同的色彩代表不同的意義,我們賦予作品顏色,結合說故事的技巧,完成一幅連環漫畫或一部書。

「Graphic Storytelling」 is first of all about learning how to tell a story through drawing. Along the way we also develop ourselves as artists through critical thinking and close observation of the real world. At the end of the course the student should have a better understanding of themselves as creators, and acquired skills in observation, expression and narration.

The 2.5 hour session is divided into three parts, Figure Drawing, Story Development and Consolidation. In Figure Drawing we take turns drawing live models and stuffed animals to practice skills of observation, proportion and accurate notation of details. We also learn how to look at our own and others’ work with a critical eye, in order to learn how to develop our own work and help others develop theirs. In Story Development we investigate emotional and gestural expression, as well as story telling techniques and strategies. And finally in Consolidation, each day we take what we have learned and try to create a finished product, which helps us bring together practice and experience of the day’s lessons.
At the end of the course we embark on a bigger project, incorporating color which of course makes it more difficult, in order to use everything we learned about storytelling and expression to make a finished story in panel or book form.

Dispossessed Workshops


Come join the five Dispossessed Workshops at the RO Studio!

The discussions will happen on the following dates, all Tuesdays at 8pm.
Address and Map

May 6 Freedom, Responsiblility, Initiative
May 13 Owning or Using
May 20 Possession: Luxury, Scarcity, Consumerism
May 27 How Boundaries Work
June 3 The Structure of Power

Links take you to the discussion wiki, where you can see the discussion guide for each workshop and also transcripts from the Becoming workshops held in April.

Our discussion will be centered around the book The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin. Here's a link to the entire book in English--it'll be extremely helpful to the discussions for you to read the book.

The main topic of our discussion is community, or kind of the ethics of community, as it relates to things like freedom, responsibility, initiative, boundaries, ownership and power. We'll be using the anarchist society described in The Dispossesed as a kind of lens to focus the discussions.

“The law of evolution is that the strongest survives!” asserts a character in The Dispossessed, to which the main character Shevek replies, “Yes, and the strongest, in the existence of any social animal, are those who are most social. In human terms, the most ethical.”

Is our ethical understanding of community what makes us strong as a community?

A community is formed of individuals, and these individuals make choices out of the ethics of their own conscience, or not. However they choose, they are interacting, cooperating and sharing with the others in the community, and so their actions impose obligations on themselves and also the others in the community. How does this all work out? What is the fairest arrangement of community, for both the group and the individual?

Come and let's figure it out together!

12/12/15永續討論筆記:火折子

驍驥:
要建立一個系統,不使用人工能源,而且還可以提高食物,如複合養殖系統
首先做一個簡單的火焰創建的設備。展現了火起動系統。
布製成的木炭
加熱15分鐘,可以在一個野營爐。
可以同時做大量。
Charcoal cloth (in metal container), vaseline (for sealing and smooth sliding) and the device.

1/25壓縮的空氣,這將產生熱量,並點燃木炭火布上

Ready?

Go!

Spark!!


如果金屬製成的,也許成本會像2-300


下一個項目,有興趣的搞清楚如何做了柱塞泵(Ram Pump)。
它可能會自動恢復約60%的水備份到一個更高的水平,只有通過水的壓力。意義是,它仍然需要一些人力的投入,但會降低到可接受的金額?還有許多的問題進行調查。




我覺得我們這群人也許要決定是否要繼續見面。如果要繼續可能要討論一下:

1.對永續生活來講,生活上那一部分不滿意?
2.問題到底在哪裡?
3.關於永續生活,自己的 目標是什麼?
4.對你來講,這個群體的目的是什麼?
5.這個群體的目標應應該是什麼?

我們的共同點:我們知道,我們的生活方式有限制的。我們知道,石油是有限的。我們知道,我們必須使用剩餘的資源,我們必須切換到一個更好的系統,或者我們可以改變任何東西之前,我們將用完。我們希望得到與其他類似思想的人一起合作。
