Think visually! Science communication applied.

Thinking Hands

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, Kristina 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 in academic workshops at Heidelberg University, and lately at Ludwigs-Maximilians-University Munich.

Let’s talk about kinship! performed by the student Pauline Affatato at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich, 2022 

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.

If you are interested in a guided workshop, please feel free to get in touch!
