[WALKABOUT: click file NAVIGATION EXHIBIT] The flyer-series #01-#06 (data-set) features a groundwork—explained step-by-step—for a theoretical focus in design in a didactic framework of a practical education in design (MA). Forebears: Spinoza, Rosalind Krauss, Felix Klein, Fredrik Barth, Jakob von Uexküll, Merleau Ponty and Arne Næss.
The flyer collection #01-06 features a data-set called a HEX. It is developed in 6 steps constituting a body of knowledge. The steps of the flyer collection has been (experimentally) altered, from previous ones, to link up with previous artistic research on signatures. Hence the operational steps: 1) initiate an operation A; 2) identify an obstacle B; 3) find a way A' around B; 4) record a reaction B' from B; 5) imagine the whole based on the first four steps; 6) note how it works out in practice. In this data-set (1 HEX) the steps are defined as 1) prompt, 2) parse, 3) fold, 4) traverse, 5) transpose; 6) embody.
