During the first week of April students in the ARTS 308 sculpture class executed their third mini-exhibition – “Movement Studies.” Eleven solo and team projects explored kinesthetic qualities of the body and nature.
Once again, students worked around the clock at the Viz Lab to finish their animation and video projects for the department’s end-of-semester fall-shows. The first exhibition featured flatwork, sculptures, and animated projects created by students in the undergrad (VIST) program.
The fifty-nine first-year students in VIST 105, the foundation design class in the Department of Visualization, are already thinking about 2015, the year they graduate. Just mention that year to them, and a loud whoop is the response.
Under the direction of Donna Hajash, Phillip Galanter, and Junghee Hahm, students in VIST-105 explored the foundational elements of 2D animation by creating shadow puppets reminiscent of those first used when the art of “animated” visual-storytelling began.
