Event description

In the UDIST course Design as a Worlding Practice, students design their own "worlds" from start to finish, including a history, cultures, and languages, as well as a vibrant visual language (graphics, fonts, imagery). The ultimate goal of this studio project is for students to think deeply about the political implications inherent to "designing their own world": how might the practice of inventing worlds that don't exist play a role in the very real and necessary project of imagining alternatives to the ongoing political and ecological crises we find ourselves in today in our world? 

The worlds that the students design will be presented in an exhibition and website on May 4, 2023, in the CCA Drawing Studio. 

Participating students include Joseph Bello, Layia Bolden, Caitlyn Britton, Sayuri Bronstein, Eli Chang, Mira Darensburg, Alexandra Delgado, Andy Lou, Gabrielle Medina, Cody Owens, Jo Pinsky, Kate Schneiderman, Aidan Thompson-McTaggart, and Kiersten Yorks.

Teaching Assistant: María Cardenas
