KISD – Köln International School of Design

BA&MA Integrated Design, Image & Motion Departemente, Motion Experience Lab, Projekt: Zoom Out Of Order

KISD - Köln International School of Design – since 1991 The so called "Cologe model" is integrated, interdisciplinary, international and part of the cultural sciences faculty of TH Köln. For now 30 years, KISD has been offering its students a unique project-oriented learning and research environment aiming at strenghtening the students’ individual interests in the BA & MA program Intergrated Design, aswell as the new program which KISD co-owns together with the faculty of computer sciences Code & Context. Since its foundation 1991 by Michael Erlhoff, KISD has relied on a structure that consistently overcomes traditional design boundaries and combines different design approaches, practices, and techniques. Design is an integral part of our everyday lives and knowledge cultures and is thus incorporated into complex structures, which can only be regarded and developed by means of different scientific and design-related disciplines. In twelve areas of expertise and throughout their non-consecutive study journey, KISD students learn about the prospects of design-related subjects and disciplines. These include, among others, the following sciences: engineering, materials, economics, semiotics, sociology, psychology, culture, motion, as well as information, media and communication. Interdisciplinary cooperation can be explicitly tested and becomes tangible by numerous project works and workshops, with our cooperation partners in industry and science. The contribution for Hurra Hurra Ring Ring is developed and initiated by the Image & Motion Departement led by Prof. Nina Juric, who also runs the Motion Experience Lab. Since 2016, she invites guests - like now Michael Titze- and investigates on practice based design research focused on the intersections of time-in-space-complexes: audiovisuality, drama & emotion, motion & movements, VR / AR / MR, code enhanced experiences, performance & performativity, body and embodiment. / www.

project group:
We are The KISDies, a pluricultural team of students from different academic backgrounds joined by Justus Schomann, Aysha Heuer, Tomás Ignacio Corvalán Azócar and Yasmine Aoufi united by KISD in the integrated design program. Under the guidance of Prof. Nina Juric and in collaboration with the designer & media artist Michael Titze, we enjoy working in the project "Zoom Out Of Order" with new technologies, methodologies and materials in order to explore the possibilities of the unknown.
