“I began thinking about this project at the same time I was researching Bruce Nauman for another class. Nauman is an artist who works fluidly across mediums and questions society’s expectations of artists and of art itself. A quote of Nauman’s that really struck me was this one: ‘What I am really concerned about is what art is supposed to be—and can become.’ Reading into his process led me to ask questions about graphic design. What does design mean? What role do designers play in society, and do we have an obligation to fulfill those expectations?“I explored the idea of space in the literal sense, and looked into artists like James Turrell who work with perception and light. The senior show is an opportunity to work with a space that will host a large part of Nashville’s creative community. I intended to address this audience and the experience of the location’s physical space. By exploring the concept of space in different mediums like installation, animation, and interactivity, I wanted to challenge preconceived notions about design. My senior show concept aspires to start a conversation with the creative community about what design is and could be.”
