2018 Winter Exhibition Opening and Design Competition
At the opening ceremony of the exhibition, a prize giving ceremony was held for the design competition “The Elevating Experience” initiated by IDI in November 2018. “The Elevating Experience” was a public space design competition, celebrating transformative work at the intersection of art, technology, and design. This competition provided a platform for all students at all levels of Zhaoqing University to present their ideas for improving the shared facilities on campus. Not only IDI-students, but also students from other schools of Zhaoqing University did a good job on this. A lot of creative ideas and thoughts could be gathered, especially through interdisciplinary cooperations among the students.
At the Winter Exhibition 2018, students presented their state-of-the-art half year results in an open display in order to receive comments and critics from different professors and fellow students. The topic of the exhibition for the second year students was “In the Flow” and the exhibits were all about water taps, the procedure of designing them and the design concepts behind them. The first year students’ exhibition showed the models they made during the three-week long Foundations course and two-week long Skills & Practices course, including pictures of their models, works made of paper clay and wires and sketches of the paper clay – all remodelled from items of everyday use taken from the students’ bags.
