Nancy’s quest: Discover and share a …

… story of a social artist by Friday
What’s an social artist, what could that be – Sozialkünstler?? The word exists in German, I didn’t now that. „Sozialkunst-Gestaltung stellt sich unbefangen, mit möglichst großem Frageernst, den sozialen Fragen und bricht, wenn es notwendig erscheint, auch ein gesellschaftliches oder unausgesprochenes Tabu, indem sie dieses zur Sprache bringt.“ Rainer Schnurre
But has social artist the same meaning as in German? Browsing DTLT Today Episode 71: The Social Artist – the social artist creates room for people to connect – virtual room? he or she comnnects people? shouldn’t people connect themselves – it is about learning and playing and working – Nancy speaks a lot with her arms 🙂 – maybe a social artist is a kind of moderator?? (as weaving was used by Gilly Salmon as well “ weaving ideas out of discussion threads together). Nancy says „visual beauty changes the communication in a room“. … we can use visuals as part of the social artistry.
Ok, now I have a better understanding of the task – but am nothing nearer to fulfil it. But rethinking it – yes, last semester I had my students drawing in class …. about their use of computers.
