Here are the plans and assignments for the DOGTime ID/UM students, MaHKU students, and IPDG students.


With the  maHKU students I will work on a more elaborate version of the Ficitious Organisation assignment that is also a part of the DOGTime curriculum. It is a design assignment, rooted in relational design, with a focus on the visual aspects of the fictitious organisation (its visual style and behaviour)  and its visual representation.


• 3rd years get 6 to 8 assignments, spread over the year. The last one is the pressure cooker project, done together with the 4th year.
• 4th years make and visualise a plan of what they want to do and learn in their 4th year.
• 5th years develop the (concepts for) the works for their final exam.

Assignments for the 3rd year:
Situated Story
Fictitious Organisation

Re-mediation (coming)
