Denise Flasz

Hello! My name is Denise Flasz, I was born in Caracas, Venezuela but I currently live in NYC. I got my BFA in illustration at the Instituto de Diseño de Caracas,and then I decided to do an MFA in Multimedia design at the Centro de diseño digital. After all this college experience and some freelancing I worked for almost two years in a Visual Communication enterprise named Oruga Films, where I can say that I learned many of the things I now know and also gained a lot of experience in what professional work and team work matters. Since I was in college I new I wanted to grow bigger and achieve many goals in life, and for this I knew that if I wanted to do great I had to attend a great school, so I applied and of course choose Parsons New School of Design. For me it was really hard to pick what I wanted to do in this school, and what kind of major I wanted to get involved into, because many things seemed so valuable and incredible interesting that it was really hard to make up my mind, and that's when I saw the DT program and how wide it was, and started projecting and realizing how much I could achieve from this major and how good it was going to be for me.

In “interaction relabeling” how is the “aesthetics of interaction” defined or explained?List one example from text, list one example life or your observations.

The aesthetics of interaction relabellings refer more to the aesthetics rather than to its use, what this means is that you can use an object to interact with, that has nothing to do with its real use, you can refer to it as if it were something else. In the text they give the toy gun example, which they use to describe and explore richness of action, they refer to the bullets and how they get expulsed and metaphorically explain how ideas can get expulsed the same way. In life people we sometimes what they have at hand to represent aesthetically something that was not meant for that use, when people want to compare grammatically the action of exploring thousand of ideas, they use the word “brainstorm” because aesthetically that’s what it is, but the functionality of a storm has nothing to do with it. When people also want to represent ferocity in an image they use a “lion” because of its connotative fierce as an aesthetic rather for what an animal or mammal.
