Taught By: Ethan Silverman and Lauren Slowik

Section: A

CRN: 1828

Credits: 6

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 is structured to assist graduating MFADT students in the successful realization and production of their final thesis and the related documentation of the projects. The studio production section concentrates on the development and further fine-tuning of student’s initial prototypes into a presentable and functional final project suitable for installation in the MFADT exhibition. Students spend the semester in iterative production process, working toward the final design of their project for the MFADT Thesis Symposium/Exhibition and other related distribution. In addition to having support from a thesis faculty and writing instructor, students are encouraged to find a thesis advisor/s to work with over the course of the semester.
