Abstract

Since the Bauhaus, the notion of destratification – the transfer into abstract, anexact geometries - has become crucial in artistic pedagogical methods. It enhances labor-intensive self- learning processes, rather than engaging with specific linguistic expressions. In the past thirty years, digital technologies have allowed to transfer topological thinking in creative disciplines. Vice versa, they have extended, across disciplines, approaches based on visualization. Topological thinking affects the way we consider the creative process itself as a deformation field, where virtually the control and the ability of the right hand is integrating and interacting with the innocence, the clumsiness and the inclination towards errors of the left one. Form- makers explore the infinite potentials of forms and through a combination of manual ability and “structural intuitions” still come to crystallize the essential.
