The aim of GRA 501 is to develop a critical understanding of the contemporary culture and the art scene through an investigation of the artistic practices, forms, and methodologies while building a sense of artistic/design identity via the implementation of design thinking as the main approach.
The students of GRA 501 are given five projects to tackle these issues.
"Who am I?", "Defining Artistic Patterns", "Make that Thing Work!", "Leftovers", "If Not Me Then Who?"
Below are their showreels and project commentaries.Header background image: Ekin Su Ünal, Interobject 1, 2
