Description

  • The theme of this year’s study unit in Product Aesthetics and Cultural Understanding has been “Light, Space, Identity”. The students have explored the complexity of the topic by combining a practical assignment of desiging a lighting fixture with reading, critical reflection and academic writing in an integrated process. They have also had on site experiences by a journey to New York as well as excursions in Oslo and at Kjeller. These trips have been foundational for their understanding of the topic and for their own projects. The students have met the challenges of the topic and its demanding assignment with great interest and personal engagement, and the results have become just as diverse as the theme. They display a fresh and innovative approach to lighting, adapted to our world of diverse cultural identities. Most of them are not final prototypes, which has never been the intention. They represent potentialities for further development and Production.
