The Japanese word for training or practicing Aikido is ‘keiko'. It consists of the two characters 稽 and 古, which in themself mean ‘consider’ and (the) ‘old’. In this lecture Dimme explores how Japanese Martial Art, drawing portraits, teaching Interface Design, iGeneration students and Life Long Learning might relate more to eachother than you would expect.
About the speaker: Dimme graduated as an Interaction Designer in 1999. Combining his love for drawing with the art of Interaction Design he founded Monkeybizniz, a company specializing in Playful Interactions. Projects range from placemats to interactice animations to applied games, with subjects ranging from teenagers dealing with upcoming loss of a loved one, therapy adherence for children and a tool to help the government design policies for sustainability.

In his spare time he loves to draw digital portraits and hands.
