Hyperdream: A Play-based Creative Framework for Illustration Practice
- 15 — 18 February 2016
Carlos Ruiz Brussain’s research is concerned with the development of a new creative framework for authorial illustration and sequential visual narrative inspired by the world of dreams, reverie states, and fantasies. It explores how divergent thinking and ideation might be increased by the use of active imagination and play dynamics for their value as motivators for creativity. This creative framework encompasses a number of different play-based approaches, techniques, and tools designed to produce flow and novel results.
The exhibition will include a selection of Brussain’s sketches, collages, illustrations, and the initial pages of a graphic novel.
