8 th October 2010 DESMA 10 – Lecture 3 Design, Society, Technology Chindogu The Japanese tradition of clever ‘unuseless’ or slightly crazy designs. The objects are often commentaries of the obsessions or excesses of the Japanese way of life. Chindogu – odd, or distorted tool Design – etymology of the word From disegno (Italian) = drawing. During the Italian Renaissance disegno was used as a way of planning paintings. It served as a set of instructions for the master painter’s helpers. 1540s: designare . “mark out, devise, choose, designate, appoint.” 1580s: desseign (thoughts must be “marked out” on paper…) The idea that you have to make whatever you are designing concrete by marking it out on paper. Leonardo da Vinci’s (1452-1519) designs Most of the inventions sketched in Leonardo’s notebooks were not realized in his lifetime. o They were designs meant to lead to production, it simply did not happen in his time. A panorama painter directing helpers The collaboration was based on precise designs, often by projecting their outlines by a magic lantern. o Magic lantern – like a slide projector. You paint the picture on glass and then it would be projected on the wall for the painters to sketch out. Panorama paintings have the top and bottom obscured so there is no clear frame, which gives the painting an illusion of reality. Pattern books disseminated designs in the form of technical drawings. Pattern books were models for production. The designs could be used directly or modified. Pattern books served design education, storing the knowledge and helping to pass it from master to student.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
