The MFA DT Thesis is a systematic investigation of a research question based in the domains of art, design or technology. It requires students to identify an area of study, research its major assumptions and precedents, explain the significance and originality of their undertaking, set forth the process and method for proposing solutions, create prototypes, and offer a conclusion through the production of a body of work. The finished project must evidence originality and experimentation, critical and independent thinking, appropriate organization and format, and thorough documentation. The Thesis Project can take many forms, from fine art works, to soft/hardware tools, interactive installations, online experiences, or social experiments. It should demonstrate the application of ideas within an applied context, whether it be in the areas of design, art, commerce, or theory. This course fosters the ideation and proposal of a thesis through a course that meets 6 hours weekly, co-taught by studio and writing faculty. The objective of the course is to develop a thesis argument by working and thinking through a series of iterative prototypes and associated writings. Students should consider how concept, aesthetics, method, interactivity and technology affect the nature of their prototypes. Students are encouraged to think critically through both making and writing, so that by the end of the semester, they have developed a high fidelity prototype of their thesis concept, that has been comprehensively described in a written design brief.
