Digital language design workshop “Digital Vocabulary”

MM lab, News

At the end of September 2018, a workshop called “Digital Vocabulary” was held in the leadership of Maja Kolar and Tina Ivezić from the Oaza, and Damir Prizmić from Radiona. The four-day workshop was held in the school library space in Rovinj. The high school students explored the ways of virtual communication that they use in their everyday correspondence.

By getting to know and socialize, the workshop leaders together with the students have defined expressive tools that we use daily in the form of gesturing, facial expression, body movements, and dancing. In addition to these well-known elements, inspiration was sought in the already existing templates in the form of Emojis.

Works, elaborated with the aid of green screens and videos, represent the interpretation of gestures, movements and language forms that are constantly in the focus of their daily conversation and interaction. The material is adapted to use in the form of stickers and emoji animations on mobile devices, ensuring its use after the workshop.

The digital language design workshop examines the cultural significance of using new technologies in everyday communication within virtual environments and the reversal of technology on thought processes, emotional abilities and (interpersonal) relationships in social networks and the internet. The participants, along with the mentorship, worked to develop the ability of responsible recognition, interpretation and creation of media content. Through reflection on their own online behavior and articulation of company opinions, they successfully processed information and passive consumers became active users.
