Task description
The purpose of this exercise is to bring in and share inspiration with the rest of the class. The task consists of groups visiting an inspirational site to gather inspirational material from there. To assist in discussions and to practice in the use of different perceptions there is a list of different questions that can be answered or at least reflected upon.

The collected data can be printed pictures in black and white or colour, it can be physical objects, sketches, impressions, commercials, sounds or smells, and all of this should be presented as a poster hanging visible to all in the studio.
If there is more material related to this experience that is not possible to attach to a poster, such as video or sounds, can be presented in a complementary web-page, with the URL printed at the poster.

The posters will be presented to the rest of the class Monday the 7th of November from 13.00 to 14.00 in the studios and every group has 5 minutes each to present.
