Artistic and creative practice
At the Department of Design art is seen as a vehicle for creative design practice and the high aesthetic quality of artifacts. It is a way to radically redefine the role and scope of design as well as practical hands-on exploration with form and materials. Art in the field of design cultivates creative problem-solving skills and generates new knowledge and solutions for creative industries and entrepreneurs. Art and creative practices challenge the faculty and students to boldly dive deeper into the foundational concept of design and to radically find new solutions to reshape our society and culture. The Department of Design promotes art-based activities across disciplinary boundaries, reaching beyond the traditions of design.
