DANCING over IDEAS of Research

19 to 21 November 2018 at NTU School of Art, Design and Media
In a university context, ‘research methodologies’ and ‘research methods’ have different meanings and purposes. At the School of Art, Design and Media (ADM) of Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU), academic research, artistic research, and design research constitute both the educational backgrounds of faculty (as supervisors and instructors) and the epistemological foundations for the graduate studies. A new graduate course was recently created to introduce a method to do research. D.A.N.C.I.N.G. stands for “Definition, Assumption, Notion, Concept, Interpretation, Narrative, Gamut”, as a path to identify, retrieve, aggregate and organize relevant materials to start an academic discourse. The DANCING method experiments cutting-edge technologies and media to facilitate the transcultural teaching of complex ideas. This event extends the exploration of the DANCING method and what NTU construed in academic, design, and artistic research.

NIK Gowing

Nanyang Visiting Professor
Nanyang Technological University

Nik Gowing was a main news presenter for the BBC’s international 24-hour news channel BBC World News 1996-2014. He presented The Hub with Nik Gowing, BBC World Debates, Dateline London, plus location coverage of major global stories. Nik has extensive reporting experience over three decades in diplomacy, defence and international security. He also has a much sought-after analytical expertise on the failures to manage information in the new transparent environments of conflicts, crises, emergencies and times of tension. His peer-reviewed study at Oxford University is “Skyful of Lies and Black Swans”. It predicts and identifies the new vulnerability, fragility and brittleness of institutional power in the new all-pervasive public information space. It can be downloaded free online after registration. The work follows an earlier study undertaken at the Kennedy School, Harvard.

In 2016, Nik Gowing co-authored interim findings of the “Thinking the Unthinkable” study. It is based on sixty top level confidential interviews of corporate and public service leaders, plus hundreds more conversations including with the new generation of millennials. The study is in partnership with CIMA. It reveals candidly the factors that explain why so many leaders face new difficulties identifying what looms in the disruptions of the “new normal” that have emerged since 2013. The findings are scary.

In 2014 Nik was appointed a Visiting Professor at Kings College, London in the School of Social Science and Public Policy. In 2016 he is a Visiting Professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. From 2014 he was a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Geo-Economics.

Wearable Technology, Fashion and Design Showcase

The course DR2014 Technology, fashion and design is an examination of the many categories of wearable technology, as well as closely related fields, such as wearable computing, techno fashion, electronic textiles, intelligent accessories, and smart clothes. Students research, experiment with and design wearable technology projects, from conceptual work to pragmatic solutions and applications. Class lectures offered a theoretical introduction and foundation for class projects that emphasize how technology can be used in wearable contexts as a means to complement the functions of the human body and enhance personal expression. The course covers product design, fashion design and prototype production which is iterated through practical course elements in the form of concept development and prototyping. An interdisciplinary roster of students included majors in product design, film, animation, and engineering. a To create the work in this runway presentation students were given the choice to work alone or with a partner and were asked to design an interactive garment that reflects personal or environment issues inspired by one of three topics 1) Scientific research 2) Biomimicry or 3) Conceal and Reveal. Students conceived of concepts, presented sketches, selected materials and made their own designs.

This fashion showcase, TRANSIENT, presents the work by the students from the course mentored by Assistant Professor Galina Mihaleva.
