Design as Entrepreneurship I
Course No. DES356X Credits: 3
Faculty Kaja Tooming Buchanan
The goal of this course is to integrate the disciplines of art, craft and design in a new form of creative practice. Through studio and seminar work we will focus on creative projects that can impact organizations and society at large. We will develop design and management skills, exploring the interdisciplinary relationship of design, innovation and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship as a practice means inventing new ideas and developing them in ways that benefit people. Students will work in teams and will develop meaningful products that serve human beings in everyday life. We will explore tangible and intangible products that are useful, usable, and desirable. Intangible products may include human interactions, services, or systems—exploring the relationships among people, their activities, and the environment within which they live. Open to all juniors and seniors.
Design Research Methods: Prod Dev & User Ex
Course No. DES353.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Kaja Tooming Buchanan
The goal of this course is to explore the methods by which designers come to understand user needs, feelings, expectations, and values. These methods are a preparation for developing breakthrough products - tangible and intangible - as well as interactions and services. We will explore several methods and their practical application in the design process to develop new products and test their usability and efficiency. Understanding user experience has become a central, distinguishing feature of the best product development, and our goal is to survey some of the best methods in current use. For example, we will learn how to build scenarios, interpret needs, generate and test ideas, visualize information and choreograph solutions. This involves interdisciplinary understanding, because many of the methods come from other fields. The growing complexity of products in our lives requires a wider understanding of how the social and behavioral sciences, together with the humanities and cultural science, are of deep value in the work of design. It requires, for example, an understanding of case study methodology, a matrix of methods of value for designers. It also requires deeper understanding of the underlying principles that give meaning, create value, and direct the whole design process. The course will be based on readings, exercises, and a variety of practical projects that support studio work. Apply as studio elective or as art/craft/design history/theory liberal arts distribution requirement. 3 credits. Grading Criteria Final grades will be based on two components: o Class participation will account for ? final grade o Individual and team projects will account for ? of the final grade. Participation will be evaluated by readiness for discussion (evidence of having read the assigned materials), response to questions and effort to contribute to class discussion.expand collapse
Emotion & Aesthetic Expression
Course No. DES350.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Kaja Tooming Buchanan
The goal of this course is to explore the concepts of emotion and aesthetic expression. We will seek to understand how and why emotion and aesthetic expression are central concepts in the theory and practice of art and design. We seek a strategic perspective on art and design with particular attention to the concepts and methods of liberal arts. We seek to balance theory, practice and production and encourage innovation and creativity. We will investigate concrete examples of emotional and aesthetic expression in a variety of traditional and new media in art and design, exploring different subject matters, materials, forms and purposes. Final grades will be based on two components: class participation and written assignments. 3 credits.expand collapse
This is an advanced video course, investigating the scope of symbolic and improvisatory cinematic storytelling. Students will explore unconventional methods of video acquisition, manipulation, processing, editing and display. Students will be able to delve into media hybrids, and rather than established narrative forms, underscoring metaphorical poetic styles that inform the structure of the work. Emphasize will be towards development of acute observational skills and innovative visualization techniques, encourage divergent thinking and cognitive flexibility. This course is for students who have a sustained interest in using video technology as part of their art-making. Note: Experimental Video (or Motion Graphics) is a required course for all Video majors and Animation majors. Required materials: A 7200 rpm hard drive, a set of headphones and a notebook.
