Today, as part of the Experience Design unit, 3rd years enjoyed an unusual presentation and workshop from Stuart Nolan, a leading expert in the design of physical and psychological deception. From Gestalt to magic, he explained the interconnection between theatrical conjuring and designing experiences through experimental case studies and making connections to psychology of mystery. Suspense, surprise, deceit, and the hidden were the main key elements of his presentation today.
