Mit seinen unkonventionellen Thesen zum Umgang mit Computern im Bereich der Grafik hat der amerikanische Design- und Informatikprofessor John Maeda die Grafikwelt schokkiert. Er weist nach, dass nahezu alle zeitgenssischen Grafiker mit vorgefertigten Programmen arbeiten, durch die sie zu abhngigen Anwendern vorgefertigter Industrienormen werden. Somit bestimmen das Programm und seine Mglichkeiten das Endprodukt - und nicht mehr die Intuition und Absicht des Gestalters, der damit den zentralen Zugang zum schpferischen Prozess verliert. Dagegen setzt Maeda seine Vorstellungen, dass, wer wirklich schpferisch ttig sein will, wieder programmieren lernen muss: DNB = Design by Numbers heit sein selbst entwickelter, interaktiver Grundkurs der Programmierung, der der individuellen Kreativitt keine Programm(ier)grenzen setzt. Creative Code dokumentiert, dass DNB fr eine breite Schicht von Anwendern erlern- und anwendbar ist und prsentiert von Maeda ausgewhlte und kommentierte Arbeiten seiner Studenten.

Affect, Synaesthesia and Metaphor in Fiction

Author: Diana Mary Eva Thomas

Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing

This study shows how fiction that makes use of textiles as an essential element utilizes synaesthetic writing and synaesthetic metaphor to create an affective link to, and response in, the reader. These links and responses are examined using affect theory from Silvan Tomkins and Brian Massumi and work on synaesthesia by Richard Cytowic, Lawrence Marks, and V.S. Ramachandran, among others. Synaesthetic writing, including synaesthetic metaphors, has been explored in poetry since the 1920s and, more recently, in fiction, but these studies have been general in nature. By narrowing the field of investigation to those novels that specifically employ three types of hand-crafted textiles (quilt-making, knitting and embroidery), the book isolates how these textiles are used in fiction. The combination of synaesthesia, memory, metaphor and, particularly, synaesthetic metaphor in fiction with textiles in the text of the case studies selected, shows how these are used to create affect in readers, enhancing their engagement in the story. The work is framed within the context of the history of textile production and the use of textiles in fiction internationally, but concentrates on Australian authors who have used textiles in their writing. The decision to focus on Australian authors was taken in light of the quality and depth of the writing of textile fiction produced in Australia between 1980 and 2005 in the three categories of hand-crafted textiles – quilt-making, knitting and embroidery. The texts chosen for intensive study are: Kate Grenville’s The Idea of Perfection (1999, quilting); Marele Day’s Lambs of God (1997, knitting) and Anne Bartlett’s Knitting (2005, knitting); Jessica Anderson’s Tirra Lirra by the River (1978, embroidery) and Marion Halligan’s Spider Cup (1990, embroidery).
