FND236A Design Studio II - Visual Dynamics

[3–6, 6 cr.]

This studio investigates the conceptual dimensions of visual representation, expanding on the perceptual manifestations of two-dimensional forms. Projects focus on composition, semantics, aesthetics, and image making leading to the formulation of visual language. Projects also address the conceptualization and representation of ideas in different media. Visual expression is explored through the assimilation of a broad spectrum of pictorial imagery, and a mature engagement in drawing, painting, experimental photography and new media. The studio intends to enhance the students’ aptitude to synthesize ideas and produce two-dimensional representations that lead to the development of a personal identity.

Prerequisites: FND231 Design Studio I-A, FND232 Design Studio I-B, and FND235 Shop Techniques
