Der Funke der Semantik / Book

Der Funke der Semantik
Der Funke der Semantik

The sparks of semantics. The theory of design as a method of conception.
For a period of 2 semesters a seminar worked on a congenial enquiry and reprocessing of both research and teaching of Prof. Dr. phil. Dieter Fuder (1947-2011).
The aim was to clarify the metareflexive view of his teaching.
The dialogue of text and picture follows a logic which refers to the second view and invites to discourses. Dieter Fuder defined the sparks of semantics as a blank in the image thus challenging the observer‘s process of reflection transcending the mere transmission of information.
