Shares of a whole
An ASCII-rastered portrait of the astronaut James A. McDivitt, commander of Gemini IV, was subdivided in 28 framed pieces. Every student received a frame with a abstract fragment of the portrait without knowing that they are parts of a whole. The students had two days to freely interpret the pattern under the topic 'design from outer space'. Exploring graphic expressions and visual languages based on an abstract pattern was the underlying strategy to reveal the manifold approaches that are possible to tackle any design problem.
