«Disco» means: I'm learning!
The first Intrinsic students received a disco ball when they started their studies in 2019: symbolic of their multifaceted skills and potential, mirroring each other and shining together. Disco balls need light and backgrounds to create glittering visibility and resonance. They have never let go of us. At many workshops and keynotes outside Intrinsic, the disco ball is our haptic legacy as a friendly reminder of what "disco" means and how we interpret it.
Disco comes from the Latin «discere»: to learn. One of the most popular metaphorical narratives, because it sets the scene for the ideal learning process, is this one:n Lernprozess in Szene setzt, ist dieses:
«Learning can be a light-footed dance to well-mixed music in a beautiful setting with other people who have their own dance style and different favorite songs. Learning can be fun and bring joyful achievement to light.»
