It was a full audience of 100 plus that attended the Michel Guglielmi lecture in the expanded double lecture rooms on top floor of R14. Medialogy students, ArT students, Sound Music Computer students, Interaction Design students attended from across semesters from undergraduates through to graduates.
As an attending staff member stated of Michel’s guest lecture on 25th September “it was probably one of the biggest crowds for a guest lecture” seen at Rendsburggade 14 in Aalborg!
Michel flew in 8 am and was busy in the morning with a workshop for Art and Technology students - semester 3 - hosted at X-Lab on main campus - see attached IMG_5481 - this illustrating the collaboration between AAU departments.
Many thanks to Hans Jørgen Andersen (ADMT/CREATE) for funding the guest visit from Copenhagen design industry.
Michel is founder of Diffus
Diffus works with a theoretical and practical approach towards art, design, architecture and new media. Diffus moves between culture, aesthetic and technology. Not by trying to embrace the fields but rather by operating in between. Diffus is driven by research, curiosity and investigation, focusing equally on form, content and the relationship between these. One of the main missions for Diffus Design is to combine traditional know-how and codified production processes with uncharted ‘soft’ technologies and complex materials. The idea is to emphasize familiarity, luxury and comfort and try to combine different materials and innovative technology in often-unpredictable ways and unconventional twists but always with strong concepts and clear narratives. Michel was one of the members of the original team that founded Medialogy.
