Design

Description

An important task for artistic research within the design field is, in relation to a given context, to develop, and through artistic work examine critically, the foundations for, and conditions of, the art of expressing and deepen the understanding of the expressiveness of materials and techniques, i.e. to develop, deepen and examine critically the artistic foundation for design as craft and as profession. It is artistic design research with a strong emphasis, both theoretically and practically, on deepening the understanding of the interplay between analysis and synthesis in the design process as a foundation for development of design methodology, design techniques and design programmes and requires a practice-based approach; for design through design. The development of methodology, programmes and techniques requires experimental artistic work with a critical approach. Similarly, a deepened understanding for the expressiveness of materials, techniques and intended use requires experimental artistic work.

Design research at the university focuses mainly on artistic design research in the textile field with specializations in

textile design; to develop, deepen and critically examine the artistic foundation for design as craft and profession with focus on the expressiveness of textile materials and techniques as they construct and express textile products and environments,

fashion design; to develop, deepen and critically examine the artistic foundation for design as craft and profession with focus on the expressiveness of garments as they dress and express people,

textile interaction design; to develop, deepen and critically examine the artistic foundation for design as craft and profession with focus on the expressiveness of the use of textiles as it defines and express textile products and environments.
