Undergraduate Course

The Visual Archive
Fall 2024
Taught By: Cybele Grandjean
Section: A

CRN: 7745

Credits: 3

In this class we will explore the relationship between form and content -- how is meaning constructed and communicated through visual language? Through observing, collecting, analyzing, writing, and form making, students will apply design processes involving visual research, concept generation, and craft skills. Driven by research interest, students will use digital and analog means to build visual archives. These collections will be approached as a resource of critical inquiry and will respond to current socio-political issues. Students will develop projects and build skills across media ranging from physical collaging to digital artifacts and more complex visual essays for paper and for screen .

Open to: All University undergraduate students. Some seats reserved for Associates Degree Communication Design students.
