Issues in Design: Theory + Culture of Design
Course No. ACD 416 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Gary D. Sampson
What exactly is the "culture" of design? Design writer Guy Julier recognizes a shift in the design profession from "a multidisciplinary to an interdisciplinary activity." This assertion will become our point of departure for exploring the interdisciplinary aspects of contemporary design practice and theory in relationship to the complexities of culture and society. We will move from conventional considerations of the history of modern and postmodern art and design, to a broader understanding of design with respect to globalization, consumerism, technological change, sustainability, and alternative trends such the "DIY" (i.e., Do-It-Yourself) movement. Visual Culture Emphasis course.
