between the analouge, the digital and the intuitive dream
ABSTRACT: Are we conscious of the tools we use in the reflective evaluation of the sketch process? Is there room enough for the abstract and intuitive sketch process? The possibilities to unfold the intuitive sketch process have been expanded with the new digital tools. The analog sketch and 3DMAX are two extremely different tools to work with, and the introduction of the cave and panorama technology just expands the possibilities. However, these new technologies require a lot of patience and curiosity from the user. Can we use Kolb's reflective loops as a platform for methodological reflection? This article will use David A Kolb's "Experimental Learning" and Bergson's "intuition as a method" to investigate the creative field between the digital and the analogue. There is an incompatibility embedded in the sketching process. The analogue sketch represents the known and open-ended, the digital the more concrete, while the cave technology is a more open and free dream room for experience. 5. Keywords: Analog, digital, cave, intuition, hermeneutic.
