GD213 DESIGN SYSTEMS
An intensive laboratory where the formal aspects of composition, organic and geometric form, color, symbolic drawing, craftsmanship, and processes of conceptualizing are investigated. Assignments are founded on directed goals and playful investigation to train the student in areas of selection, self criticism, set theory, and visual logic. Prerequisite: Completion of the Foundation program, or permission of the instructor by portfolio review and interview.
Fundamental exercises of composition using dots and lines to explore the concepts of order and randomness in a controlled format. Students were then asked to use photographic elements instead as a first step in creating more complex messaging.
