However, sometimes it is necessary to find new methods of generating forms and aesthetics, to forget about the informational content and to just start playing — experimenting. The instructions for this semester were the following: Build your own laboratory, use other labs for your explorations. Become aware of graphic design as a research method, as science. Think outside the box, build a box, become a box.
