PSU Graphic Design: In The Classroom

New Class: Design In Context (Failure)

ART 399: Design In Context (Failure)

Within the disciplines of art and design, there is an inherent element of risk. Answers are not pre-determined, and outcomes are the natural extension of the biases, influences and processes we undertake. Failure occurs in abundance. We encounter it everywhere from the collapsing of a structure, to the deliberate misinformation of agit-prop. Even though artists and designers are prone to walk a path of (un)intended consequences, we have also notably used failure in our working practice intentionally. This course will investigate such topics from a variety of perspectives in order to gain a deeper understanding of what failure means to us individually and collectively.

The class will be held T/TR from 9-11:50 and taught by Assistant Professor Meredith James. Please contact her with more questions:
