Creative thinking, writing and design

There is this joint Master degree being offered for the first time in Lebanon, where LAU is part of it!
...more about it

This part of the module will focus on the intellectual linkage of art, design and technology. Students will also be presented with a range of criteria to analyse the context of creative practises in new media. 50 students will be selected to participate in the first online phase of the course.

Personally, I have been up close and personal with some of the candidates discussing their proposals and approaches. It is very interesting to engage from a third party perspective and evaluate the journey I have been through, through the lenses of that course.

The proposal should be a project idea for a creative digital production in the fields of art, design, and technology, expressing your reflections on traditional and contemporary Arab culture. You might want to consider it more as a digital media art project, or a design project that makes use of digital technologies. So, you have to present us with a proposal for such a project, and how you would plan to work on it during Part 2 and 3.

What the evaluators will be looking for in the proposals are:
- fresh ideas with an aesthetical approach
- artistic imagination and creative interpretation
- critical perspectives with socio-cultural implications
- use of technology as an expressive language etc. but yet the project should be very much accessible and feasible
