Students create eco-graphics
Students from the College of Visual and Performing Arts, L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science, School of Architecture, Martin J. Whitman School of Management, the College of Arts and Sciences, the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the School of Information Studies came together in September for the Creative Climate, an intensive weekend eco-graphics design workshop sponsored by SU Showcase. Led by Tara DePorte, director of the Human Impacts Institute in New York City, and Andrea Buckvold, an instructor in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, the students researched the effects of climate disruption and brainstormed and experimented with ways to communicate the danger to others.
Using collage, silkscreen or computer graphics, they produced posters, which are now on display on the fourth floor of the Hall of Languages and the first floor of Bird Library. Following are some of their works.
