When I teach, especially teenagers, I'm always thinking.... How can I
make this relate to their life; does this relate to their life? And, how
can I get them involved the most I can, physically. The old thing about
getting the student to use as many senses as they can to help them
understand and retain the information. If they are subjected to a
lecture where they can't interact or move their body beyond listening
and looking, you loose them more quickly
So maybe the concept of the field of illustration becoming more 3-D and
interactive.. How can we more fully connect and mix the traditional
visual communication with other techniques that call on more of our
senses. Including touch and interaction.
Just a thought.

What about researching the future of 3D illustration? I think as we are
progressing in our technology, computer learning and 3D images are
becoming more mainstream... and with that comes not only the ability to
rotate an image to any angle but also to make layers, so we can see what
lies underneath, say, the skin of a human or the outer shell of a
nuclear reactor. There are many ways you could go with that, from using
existing software to getting down and dirty to write your own.
You could make a hologram - no monitors needed! ...or maybe that's too
far off yet.
Just an idea.
