Royal College of Art graduate Alessandra Fumagalli Romario explains how her project Imaginary Language gives actors and children tools to help them think more creatively in this video interview shot by Dezeen.
Romario developed Imaginary Language as her graduation project to complete her degree in Product Design at the Royal College of Art in London.
Imaginary Language is a set of basic geometric objects that can be combined to create a variety of new forms. Users can then assign functions and meaning to their creations and play with them.
According to Romario, the set of objects was designed to encourage creative thinking in its users. “It’s a tool to foster creativity,” she says in the video interview, which was shot by Dezeen at the Royal College of Art graduate show.
“My research is based on a psychological theory by Irving Biederman,” Romario explained. “According to him, our brains are able to recognise objects by dividing them into geons, which are geometrical primordial shapes.”
