Marcus Cook "Understanding User Interface and User Experience"

MFA THESIS EXHIBITION

Marcus Cook: Understanding User Interface and User Experience

University Gallery

Marcus Cook is a Graphic Design MFA candidate whose thesis project focuses on the health and well-being of college students.

Eating healthy is a common challenge for many college students, especially those who are still adjusting to new routines. Dealing with social changes and learning to live away from home can be tough. However, when students are eating healthy meals, they do better in college.

Cook has developed a simple solution that can help them chose a healthy diet without making any big changes in their daily schedule. It is a healthy choice app, called “GOOD FIT,” that can run seamlessly on both IOS and Android devices.

November 2–6

Tameka Phillips "Patterns of Identity"

MFA THESIS EXHIBITION

Tameka Phillips: Patterns of Identity

University Gallery

Throughout human history, we have used patterns in order to artfully express ourselves and showcase different cultures. Various colors and patterns have been used as visual cultural signifiers to identify specific social groups and their role in the greater society. However, the meaning behind a textile’s design provides more diversity in cultural identity. In Patterns of Identity, Tameka Phillips explores how patterns, colors, and texture in textiles can be used to represent multicultural identities in the human form. 

Nikolaus James "Plausible Expositions with Possible Expeditions"

MFA THESIS EXHIBITION

Nikolaus James: Plausible Expositions with Possible Expeditions

Contemporary Gallery

Plausible Expositions with Possible Expeditions is a body of work by Nikolaus James that features photographic stills displayed through CRT televisions. Inspired heavily by video games and cinema, James fabricates scenes before the camera using objects that suggest a narrative that viewers can then make connections with to formulate a unique story. This series and how it’s presented is a way for James to promote active viewing as opposed to passive observation.
