In art, technology, or design, it’s often the choices and directions we see as ‘weird’, as just against the norm, that are the ones which will open up new possibilities and potentially revolutionize entire disciplines. We will look at a few case studies from film, music, technology and design, where weird decisions challenged conventions and broke new ground, and have a discussion about how you can unleash the power of ‘thinking weird’.
