Thinking Hands (TH) is a creative technique for visualising and discussing topics, research, and concepts. It’s a powerful tool for building a collective brain and tackling problems.
TH was inspired by working with artist colleagues and co-creation with ︎︎︎Katrin Funcke, ︎︎︎Krisitina Heldmann, and ︎︎︎Stefan Michaelsen.
I named and documented it as a social design method within my doctoral thesis in 2015.
Since 2014, the method was implemented with my scientist sister ︎︎︎Annika Guse in academic workshops at Heidelberg University, and lately at Ludwigs-Maximilians-University Munich.

Moreover, the results are proessionally photographed for documentation. They are transfered into a slide show or printed formate to be distributed to the group which can be used for further presentations and inspiration.
