This workshop is about shifting your visual paradigm. It will explore different objects and ideas and open one’s mind to looking at things differently. Words, images and narratives build ideas and ideas shape a thought that, in turn, becomes a visual. The process of thinking differently and setting yourself apart will be the objective of this session.
