Taking a broad range of tools, from simple hand tools to complex apparatus like cameras and computers, from the actual to the metaphorical, Tools for Ideas will aim in a relatively short space of time to generate a body of artworks with and about the use (and abuse) of tools – artworks that might begin to conflate the meaning of making with the making of meaning.

Description
During this workshop students will get an insight into using blender as a formidable open source alternative to programs that are either vastly expensive or that are only available through subscriptions that bind the user to a product and that create long term costs that are problematic for artists to deal with in their professional life. While blender offers a huge spectrum of possible areas to work in we would focus on the specifics of combining real world with animated elements, thus providing a tool for design and fine art students to work with on future projects that are either study related (ie film projects in the area of animation) or wider set (ie creating visuals for architectural or sculptural applications).
