This past spring, three students working in different disciplines (Photography, Graduate Transportation Design and Interaction Design) bravely chose to accept the challenge/opportunity (those last two words may as well be permanently fused—no slash necessary— when it comes to artistic endeavors) to reveal the agony and the ecstasy, the challenges and the epic fails that go into conceiving and creating a project over the course of a term. They had enlisted in Art Center’s ongoing collaboration with Myspace to highlight Art Center’s unique approach to creativity and diligently, digitally tracked his/her progress with a trio of videos shot at the beginning, middle and end of the creative journey.
And now the results are in. Last term’s final Myspace videos have been shot, edited and published. And we can unequivocally guarantee that watching these students conceive, ideate, revise and complete their ambitious, risky and innovative creations will be, at the very least, impressive and, more likely, seriously inspiring.
We’ve compiled the three concluding videos here, above and below. But for those who haven’t been tuning in for the previous two installments of this series, we’d like to encourage you to resist the temptation to skip to the end of the story and instead visit our Myspace and/or YouTube hubs and watch each series unfold consecutively.
Here‘s a little background on the participants and their projects to pique your interest. It’s hard not to marvel at how these students seeks to transform the world through art and design. And, in at least one moving case, the student was transformed by the process of creating.
Enjoy. And in the spirit of a virtual critque, feel free to weigh in with your thoughts and feedback in the comments section below.
