Sonia Delaunay and the Art Simultané

"Together, the Delaunay [Sonia and Robert Delaunay] start a research on color that will be the essence, the content and the form but also the line of a new painting for a non–figurative art. Influenced by the Fauvism, she first presents works whose subjects and models are marked, slashed by the brutality of the shades. Creative perfection to aim at, the music offers to the artists, at this time, the philosophical assessment that will underlie their respective works. Powerful associations of rhythms and melodies, the compositions gather in the idea of 'simultaneous' what makes a new challenge for poets and painters. Sonia Delaunay then progressively develops a lyrical use and signification of the color, close from cubism, between rhythm and shade. Repetitions of forms, structures but also colors, her paintings take a direction all her artistic propositions will follow."

Learning Objects for Design (Formalism)

"'Learning Objects in Design: Written Refocalization' is a learning object for design education. A learning object for design (LOD) is comprised of the modules: concept; interpretation (examples that are interpretations of the concept(s)); design task; proto design; critique guide; resources. When delivered as a web site, as opposed to through a learning delivery system, the LOD also includes an index page. The learning object provides a design problem that embodies one or more design concepts. The student takes a partially completed design and completes it. Further, the student critiques the designs of other students according to an included critique guide. 'Learning Objects in Design: Refocalization' uses the design concepts: focus and refocalization. Its design task requires students to rewrite a story around a secondary character."
