Introduction | Imaginaional Intelligence

Introduction

To imagine is to bring the invisible into visibility. Imagination is thought of the heart. Our heart speaks in images and if we are to understand the language of the heart we too should speak imaginatively. Imagination is a source of intelligence that perceives the subtleties of  the relationship between our mind and the world and expresses and contains this intelligence in form of images.

Having access to this intelligence enhances our intuitive perception and enables us to see meaningful similarities across "seemingly" different phenomena. This new way of seeing helps you access a new inner-dimension through which you can observe and communicate not in information or data but in art.

To this end, this module equips you with techniques and exercises that activate this imaginal dimension. We will explore examples and ideas across various disciplines such as architecture, design, philosophy, phenomenology, art, and psychoanalysis.
