A Matter of Experiences, not taking it for granted

The A Matter of Experiences Exhibition which was held at the SD Gallery for last two weeks, has concluded yesterday.

Exhibited were the works done by the year-one students of BA(Hons) in Design (Visual Communication) for the 10-week subject “Book and Publication”. The exhibits were the outcome of the first 5 weeks which covers bookmaking, toolbox or portfolio, A4/A3-size booklet and poster-booklet.

The aim of this first part of the subject is to enhance the students’ tangible experience of making a book/box with physical materials. It is a prelude, intended to strengthen their individual sensitivity for designing a book with special attention to texture, color, line, plane, form and space (printed/digital elements). Emphasis is placed on a conceptual understanding of a simple sheet of paper. This is essential for an in-depth understanding of how a sequence of papers relate to book design. Including texts and images, methods of cutting and folding, and considering time and space, all of which become the visible and the invisible elements of the works exhibited. The three assignments were to design an A4 and an A3 booklet and a poster-booklet which gives the students a practice for generating original printed publications, and for finding access to developing their own philosophy and concept for creating.

The exhibition was curated by Esther LIU, Associate Professor of School of Design.

Participants included:

CHAN Kit San
CHUN Kai Fung
HO Lut Hin
KAN Yuen Ting
LAM Oi Keat
LAM Pui Yuk
LAU Ka Man

Summer in Italy for our VC students

It was a pleasure to see the viscomm exhibits this year. As a marketeer I naturally look at presentation first, but the content in these projects don’t fall short of deep, intriguing thoughts. In fact it kept me revisiting for three times with the thirst to see more. As such I’m very happy to see this news from my viscomm colleague:

Dear VC Colleagues

Hello! A good news I’d love to share with you all!
Our VC students’ work (video+motion graphic) is officially selected and will have a screening at Venice Biennale 2009. yes!! This summer in Italy!

Actually, in semester two, we have invited two guests from Amsterdam to hold a DV workshop for DV Basic students. The students have eventually produced a lovely ‘motion-graphic name card’ and ‘one min cityportraits’.

Now, “Hong Kong Cityportraits” is selected and will be screening together with another 5 cities, in the Arsenale Program along with the Venice Biennale of this year.

I will update you with more infomation once I receive any news in the future!

Best wishes
HUNG Keung
