The second lecture of this unit was all about inspiring writing in Art & Design. We watched a film called the Happiness Machine (which I need to watch again). The lecture incorporated different aspects of visual thinking and one point of reference was Rudolph Arnheim. How visual manipulation can affect society. This then moved on to the idea of consumerism and using other people’s emotions to benefit others.
From these notes I will continue my independent research and look over the film again as well as delving further into visual manipulation & consumerism.
Below is an uploaded image of my lecture notes.
