Studio projects focus on the act of making and curating an iterative series of ephemeral installations within a dormant seed-drying chamber using ethno-specific logic as spatial container. This course of study provides students the opportunity to make full-scale inquires and, thereby, move beyond representational methodologies and precedents as the only means of cultivating design thinking. On a deeper level, however, we want to gain exposure to the intimate scale of the family farm unit with respect to the enormity of its host (agri)culture. We will employ at grade knowledge as both an investigative and a navigational strategy, and reconcile the often-considerable gab between the representation of ideas and the construction of experimental space.
