Graphic design student Tais Ghelli aimed to explore the boundaries of transmedia design with an exhibition on Brazilian Brutalist Architecture.

DAZZLE began as a regular public art commission through a competitive process in 2015 and evolved into a research project for the adaption of e-paper technology as an innovative dynamic material for exterior use on an architectural scale.
The resulting solar-powered 1,600-foot long artwork by Ueberall International facing the Pacific Highway comprises 2,100 custom developed e-paper panels that display animations remotely controlled via a wireless network.
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.

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.
E-paper technology is best known for its use in eReaders around the world. But a unique collaboration between artist Nik Hafermaas of Ueberall International and E Ink Corporation—makers of E Ink Prism™, the eco-friendly, high-fidelity alternative to LED that powers the Kindle reader—has resulted in the world’s largest three-dimensional application of e-paper technology.
