Environment and Place: The Mini Museum (1stTerm Year 1)

授课老师:Daniel Tollady,李翔

The different objects that we own are important to us and reflect our own individual values and personalities and also indicate to other people who we are. Objects come to us in many different ways. Sometimes we buy them and sometimes we inherit them or are given them as gifts. We end up with collections of objects that are selected and given according to our own individual needs and criteria. Our objects might be expensive, cheap, free, digital, analogue, old or new, but whatever the status, they each have their own unique value and qualities.

We all have different collections of objects, but so do the many museums and galleries around the world. As these objects reflect our own values, the objects collected by different institutions are gathered and curated to reflect the different communities and societies that inhabit the world. Objects are studied by a variety of different designers, artists, archaeologists and anthropologists in an attempt to understand their meanings and values. As cultural institutions, these museums and galleries seek to present this information to us so that we can learn and develop a deeper understanding of society and its history.

As an introduction to Environmental Design, students explored and investigated ideas around domesticity, curation and objects, and their individual values. Through this investigation students worked to understand the objects that they each own and designed and built a small-scale museum apparatus. The unit encouraged students to explore the question: How can you use environmental design and the development of a small installation to communicate the value of individual personality and its belonging to the wider community?

Environment and Placewas jointly taught by Daniel Tollady, from University for the Creative Arts, and Li Xiang from Xiamen University. With an 8-hour time difference between UK and China, the two tutors worked together to deliver the course both online and face-to-face. The core task of the unit was to build a mini-museum exhibiting individual objects through three phases – personal object selection, dormitory survey, and mini-museum design. Students were introduced to spatial cognition and essential drawing skills, and were encouraged to put forward their creative ideas. Through eight weeks of learning, exploring and designing, students accomplished their first curation tasks, and each presented his/her design portfolio and design diary.

每个人所拥有的物品对自己来说都具有重要意义。它们在体现个人价值与性格的同时,也向他人传递了物主的态度。我们购买、继承或是被赠与了这些物品,最终拥有了精挑细选后、符合个人需求和标准的藏品。这些物品价格可高可低,可新可旧,可能是电子的,也可能是实体的,但无论如何,最重要的是这些物品都拥有独特的价值与品质。

正如我们都拥有不同的物品一样,世界各地的博物馆与展览馆也拥有互不相同的收藏。个人物品反映了个人价值,博物馆与展览馆则通过挑选和策展,展示了世界上不同群体、不同社会的面貌。设计师、艺术家、考古学家和人类学家对物品加以研究,探索物品的意义与价值。博物馆和展览馆作为文化机构展出不同物件,实质就是为了向我们传达这些信息,帮助我们更好地了解、学习社会和社会历史。

《环境与场所》作为环境设计专业的基础课程,旨在帮助学生探索并研究自己的生活环境、策展活动、周边物品以及其特有的价值。通过探索与学习,同学们加深了对所拥有物品的,并尝试在个人空间中构建迷你博物馆。课程将引发同学们思考:如何通过环境设计与小型装置向更多人传递设计背后的个体价值与物品的归属?

《环境与场所》由来自英国创意艺术大学的Daniel Tollady老师与厦门大学的李翔老师联合授课,线上线下课程跨越8小时时差同步进行。课程的核心任务是设计一个展览个人物品的迷你博物馆。任务分为三个阶段:个人物品选择、宿舍空间测绘及迷你博物馆设计,涵盖空间认知、制图规范、个性表达等内容。同学们通过8周的学习、研讨及设计,完成了首次策展任务,并在设计日志中记录了创作始末及心路历程。
