✹ What is ‘New’?
29 th November 2020
               

Today I’m rethinking about the definition of the word ‘shiny’ and from the previous blog I've written - shiny can mean 'new/ never before seen' Coincidently - today I also listen to The Futur whiteboard session via Youtube which there is an interesting subject I found useful and inspiring for my project.

⇲The Futur is an online education platform that provides the knowledge of the understanding of design for students, teachers and the business organization. Teaching by ⇲Chris Do, CEO and founder of The Futur. The whiteboard session I've been listening to today is 'The difference between design and art - how to find your worth' 7th February 2020



One student has been struggling with how to define herself whether she should say she's a designer or an artist because she has been engaging in different projects, sometimes she made arts sometimes she designed. But currently, she defines herself as a designer.

I have been wondering about this concern too, as I have been studying in a design programme but sometimes I love working more on the conceptual idea and sometimes get confused about the final result and doubt if it is an art or a design piece?

Chris answer this question quite clearly that art is more of sharing the feelings while the design is more of solving the problem. Art is made from the maker's feeling or made to express something, to start the conversation, for questioning something whereas design is for serving clients, have a brief, to answer the question.

This reminds me of another podcast I had listened to the other day, ⇲Material Matters with Grant Gibson; Tomas Libertiny on beewax. He mentioned that art is like a cat, they are independent and more of self-sufficient when design is more like a dog - they take demand, they respond to the human call.

Later in this video, there is one question I found relevant to the subject I have been researching on at the moment. One student asked the same question I have which is 'How to create a content that has never seen before and isn't sampling from other people's work because sometimes we even do it subconsciously, How can we avoid doing something repetitive?'

Chris asked the student 'when is the last time she see something she's never seen before?' the student took some time to think but hadn't gotten any answer.

New - Never before seen.
It's new to you but maybe not for everyone, as we have consumed information differently. We experienced differently.

'New' is very subjective.
The student discussed - New, she meant, for the audience.
So then we have to know our audience, Chris suggested.

But there's nothing new in this world. Everything is the remixed of something else. The way to create 'new' content is to present the pre-existed content in a new way. Bring something the audience never has seen before and tell the story about it in your own way. It's the same principle for the film industry - the same story has been told in a thousand different way - boy falls in love with a girl but they can't be together because of some factor and that factor changed to create a new story. It's the same thing.

I have been stuck with this idea of creating something 'New' something that nobody has seen before for a while and can not move forward. I feel like it's something ambitious and challenging and at the same time is a weight that holds me back from the curiosity.

This whiteboard session has given me a clearer understanding of 'New content' in the art and design world. By this, I think I have gotten some idea what I want to do next, and finally can get out from that hole I'd been stuck in earlier.
