Int Studio 1: Fake
Taught By: Anney Bonney
In this course we explore the creative process. It’s not simply about what we make, or how we make it, but why? What do you do with an idea? Is there more than one way to approach an assignment? How can research become part of this process? You will engage in a series of cross-disciplinary projects that ask you to make up and define your own rules. You will actively: question, observe, visualize, play, fail, reframe, experiment, fabricate, and reflect.
In Integrative Studio 1, projects scale from the individual to the collective. You will start with the self, and then enter into a conversation with your peers, before moving into a collaborative group dynamic. Finally, you will use research conducted in Integrative Seminar to inspire a culminating project which utilizes skills built over the semester across courses.
At the heart of the integrative model is the connection to your Integrative Seminar class. Our goal is to make reading, writing and critical thinking essential components of the art, design and strategic thinking processes. The two courses are tied together conceptually through a shared theme (as defined by the keyword of your class) and through bridge projects. Bridge projects are shared assignments between studio and seminar. They ask you to explicitly and productively blur the boundaries between the two courses. What happens when making becomes a form of thinking and writing becomes a form of making?
This section will be framed through the keyword “fake.”
How do we define what is fake and what is real, and what are the various values we attribute to these categories? Through the lens of Fake, we explore the ways that ideas, images and objects can be used – positively and negatively – to produce alternative forms of knowledge and views of reality.
