The Contemporary Craft Center is a place to both see and make art. The center emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning and creating—the same approach Art Center College of Design student Britteny Teng took when creating a visual language for her micro-exhibition.
The assignment was to create an interactive installation to complement the exhibition of an artist’s work and distill the concept that the artist is trying to convey and reimagine it for others to not only enjoy the experience but to understand the process behind the artist’s vision.
Optic Symphony is an interactive installation designed for the Decibel Electronic Audio+Art Festival. How do musicians listen to music? Inspired by the phenomenon of synesthesia, this spatial installation explores the relationships between the three foundations of music—rhythm, melody and harmony.
Creative risk-taking in Media, Technology, and Space. When he’s not running the graphic design department at Art Center College of Design, Nik Hafermaas is creating new ways to combine digital interactive media, high-tech materials, and architecture through his studio Ueberall. He says there is no better place for innovation—and risk-taking—than XGD.
Anne Burdick is the Chair of Media Design Practices (MDP), a graduate program at Art Center College of Design focused on designing for the future of information and communication technologies. To address the global and social dimensions of this work, the MDP recently established two tracks. In the Field track, students work on social issues in a real-world context—the first cohort just returned from working at UNICEF’s Innovation Lab in Kampala, Uganda.
Nik Hafermaas is an international award-winning artist, designer, and educational leader. His Los Angeles-based artist platform Ueberall conceives and produces data-driven art installations converging digital media and spatial experiences. His artist team produced the data-driven sculptures eCLOUD for San Jose International Airport and Airfield for Atlanta International Airport and is currently creating landmark art pieces for the San Diego International Airport and for the new North Precinct Police Headquarters in Seattle.
Art Center’s Graphic Design students learn to infuse words and images with life and meaning, whether they are creating motion graphics on the latest digital equipment or setting type by hand in Art Center’s letterpress shop.
A “slow media” installation allows visitors to interact with light, shadow, words, and the pull of the earth.
Time is an artificial construct, created by humans to meet our needs. Consumed as we are with how quickly it passes—and despite our determination to make it just another commodity—time defies our efforts to control it.
This interactive exhibit uses a human-scale display system to allow visitors to explore the photographic work of artist Tatiana Parcero on multiple levels of their own choosing. By projecting through a large pane of half-silvered glass and embedding a diverse range of sensors into the psychical display, the designer created an innovative way for users to incorporate into and interact with the artist's work. The exhibit also includes a dynamic spatial interface that allows the user to explore a timeline of the artist's personal and professional history.
