This year's degree class has for three years gained knowledge in visual communication, with courses that contribute with artistic, technical, communicative and social approaches to the subject. In a mix of individual tasks and group work, the student has developed their own idiom and relationship to what visual communication can be.
The degree exhibition is the result of the longest and most independent course of the programme. The student has been working on his project for 18 long weeks. It is a demanding task to work on something for so long and find the methods that make the project move all the way to the finish line.
Since the subject of visual communication always conveys a content, the visitor gets both an insight into what content interests our students in spring 2019 and take part of all the ways they choose to portray this content.
In a class that has been together for three years, similarities arise, but fortunately the students also retain their differences. The topics students have worked on range from social issues such as loneliness, stereotypical gender descriptions and contraception for men to consumption-critical questions about how the technological possibilities affect the climate and to surveys of children's play and learning. The design contains a diversity of media: films, printed matter, digital platforms, websites, objects and installations with the visitor in focus.
We hope that you leave the exhibition and have experienced and learned new things, at least we teachers who handled the projects have done so!
