Design Exercises in Image Making

This open lecture is a reflection about today’s visual culture and about tools that allow designers and artists to create images. Pierluigi will present some of his work and he will contextualize it with references to image making methods and photography techniques.

The craft of image making is interwoven with mankind, from cave paintings to digital photography, and it has tremendous weight on how we remember moments, how we read information and how we communicate.

In this retrospective, Pierluigi will  highlight the craft quality of images, created with digital tools, and start a conversation about authenticity, artifacts’ “aura” and the power of image making in today’s society.

Pierluigi is a Senior Lead Designer at NIO where he is exploring the user experience for autonomous and connected cars. In his artistic and design practice, Pierluigi devotes time to expand his understanding of the intersection between digital and physical materials, most of the time with image making.
Pierluigi is a Cinema and Media Engineer by training, and, after having worked as graphic programmer in the early days of post-pc devices, he pivoted towards interaction design, attending the Interaction Design Program at CIID, where he learned to craft experiences that mix digital, natural and tangible elements.
When: March 5th 2018, 17-18.

Where: CIID, Toldbodgade 37B, Ground Floor, 1253 Copenhagen K.
