Exhibitions

Mar 31, 2014 to May 16, 2014
Linear Gallery

This exhibit crafts an interdependence between computing and drawing in an effort to question the role of the singular "author" within contemporary design culture. With apparatuses and algorithms designed specifically for the Linear Gallery site, visitors participate in multiple "slowly computed" and "slowly made" drawings that occur over the course of the exhibit.

This exhibition seeks to make visible the relationship between the body, clothing, and architecture. Textiles wrap the physical body; Tectonic skins enclose the architectural body.

 

The Cardboard Chair Project introduces General Education students to the design of objects for human use, exploring the fit of object to human body and its ability to support human activity. The project introduces tangible realities of material, structure, and dimensions. It introduces basic architectural design technologies of drawing and physical model building.
