Defamiliarisation of everyday reality
It is different between watching video about daily public transport and take bus/train in real life. I have never noticed sounds or some other details of surrounding environment when I take bus/train everyday. However, I’ve noticed these details when I was watching those video and imagine I was in the situations, such as more noisy environment and speed of the bus. And I found writing without thinking is very useful to keep the memory of some new ideas which are suddenly coming out, and need not to worry out grammar or spelling.
I think walking with limit sight is very difficult, although my friends lead me to walk safely. Because when the glasses were covered with cling wrap, I can only rely on lights and bright colours to help me know the surrounding environment, and the sense of safety reduced when I walk with poor sight. It would be terrible if I walk in a unfamiliar place with limit sight. According to this experience, I really sympathise those kinds of people who with limit sight.
1.How is this sketchnoting technique different to the traditional note taking?
Compared with traditional note taking, sketch noting technique is more vivid and convenient way to communicate ideas.
Firstly, sketch noting consists of image and texts, which will be more vivid and impressive than pure text notes. Because almost people prefer reading image to reading texts, and image might be a more visual and easily understanding way to explain a idea.
Moreover. key points can be highlighted by using graph or images in sketch noting, and people will easily to find the key points and understand sketch noter’s idea.
Therefore, sketch noting technique is a more efficient way for people to understand ideas than the traditional note taking.
However, sketch noting might take more time than traditional note taking.
2.How does this visual approach facilitate communication of your ideas? Conversely, how does it prevent it?
Because sketch notes always combine graph, image and texts. Reader will easily understand the key points through the images, and almost people read images faster than read pure texts. Furthermore, pure texts or pure image notes could make reader confused and cause misunderstanding of designer’s idea, however, sketch notes could avoid the misunderstanding, because vivid image and literal notation will help reader understand the ideas. Thus sketch noting facilitates communication of designers’ ideas.
The main challenge is my poor painting fundament.
Firstly, it’s difficult for me to explain some ideas more accurately by painting images. My image might lead readers to get confused and misunderstand my ideas.
And amateurish skill might take much time for sketch notes.
