Degree Show Season [updated]
Many schools and programs are having their degree shows at this time of year. I tought it would be interesting to collect and review intriguing and inspiring IxD work, while UID IxD graduating students are wrapping up their final projects. Reminder: UID’12 Design Talks and Degree Exhibition will take place June 4-5, more info at http://www.uid.umu.se/12.
ITP Spring Show 2012
Tisch School of the Arts, New York
All the thesis project presentations (including speaker, slides, crowd video streams) are available here. Amazing, but if you don’t know the projects, it’s hard to navigate a bit just by unknown names…
Interactive Art and Computational Design, Spring 2012
Carnegie Mellon University
Great documentation of the final projects. These are for one course taught by Golan Levin, not a full program.
IN/VISION, 2012 MFA Interaction Design Festival
School of Visual Arts, New York
It’s hard to differentiate course projects from thesis endeavours, but a few are listed here.
Goldsmiths UG Degree Show
Coming soon, but the 2011 crop crop looks pretty sweet, so 2012 should be good too!
From our southern neighbours in Gothenburg, the exhibition is set for June 2-10, but it seems many projects are already viewable: Design BA,Design MA, Child Culture Design MA and Business & Design MA.
Konstfack Degree Exhibition 2012
The exhibition is running now, May 16th to 27th. The online exhibition has basic coverage of most projects. The most relevant and closest to IxD are Experience Design and Formgiving Intelligence MA, plus Industrial Design BA. UID alumnus Hampus Edström has his MA project online but the images are missing.
Carleton University School of Industrial Design
This canadian school offers both BA and MA programs in Industrial Design. The exhibition is divided in interest groups:Access Sport (sport + disabilities), Blue Sky, Fireline (forest firefighting), Lucid Space (office/workplace), Sprout (interesting technologies for social interaction) and Start (business-oriented).
