Technical level


Creativity can’t always be mandated or predicted. It requires experimentation, and often results in totally useless or outrageous ideas that might mean nothing of value. However, innovation requires us to keep moving forward and we eventually find some ideas worth pursuing! In this highly interactive and hands-on workshop, we will play around with one such technique that helps us build something of no apparent value, but is great fun nevertheless!


In this session, we will introduce the concept of Chindogu - the Japanese art of creating “unuseless” objects. The idea is to do some crazy stuff to create sometime of no value, but have fun creating new stuff, and who knows....something of value might come up!


Open space, lots of paper, coloring pens, cellophin tape, thermocol, cardboard, etc…
