Next week the College of Arts and Media (CAM) is hosting a MFA Visualization Think Tank with designers, educators and practitioners in the area of visualization from all over the world coming together to help us design the program. Last year, CAM hosted a similar event in Film that was very successful.
Our purpose of this Think Tank is to develop â€œfirst takesâ€ for a graduate program that uses art and design methodologies to create visual solutions and/or interpretations for the social, scientific, economic and cultural challenges facing us today
Most of the work will be during two day long sessions but there are several events that are open to the public and I have posted them to my calendar – http://www.bryanleister.com/about/calendar. The main public event is Thursday night at Starz Film center where our guests will talk about their work and answer questions.
Wednesday night, ShiftControl Studios will be talking with students in Digital Design about their work, any UCD student is welcome to attend. This Copenhagen studio is doing some of the most cutting edge work in interactive design and we’re very fortunate to have most of the studio in town for this event.
