Thinking with the Hands
Recently we were invited by our good friend José Manuel dos Santos, to offer a workshop on creativity. So off we went to the city of Porto to be a part of Mindshake, a week long program that articulated a series of events around the idea of how to deal with creativity and its’ tools. Our session was called “thinking with the hands”. We looked at slides with examples from well known scientists and artists and did practicle exercices. To contact the deeper layers underlying our thoughts and visualize them using our hands, was the challenge. Our participants were open and willing to play making up for the sessions’ success.
