SFDN208 Sustainable Projects for Artists And Designers 3cr

Sustainable art and design focuses on how to

leave our future more just, healthy, and

environmentally stable than it is today. Through

careful consideration of materials, life cycles,

subjects, audiences, economies, and many other

aspects of daily life, we imagine and make

projects that address significant issues

resulting from environmental impacts on human and

animal societies.


Open to students from all departments, this

course focuses on developing projects in an

interdisciplinary studio setting that address

issues of sustainability on our campus, in our

city, and in the larger global context. Research

practices, collaboration, and charrette forms are

explored through a series of assignments

including a community service project. Through

readings, field trips, visiting lecturers, and

critique, we learn about revolutionary projects

in sustainability in design and art fields today.

This class allows students to work in the medium

of their choice while focusing on research and

development in the area of sustainability.
