Thesis Project

12 credits

This course supports the practical, conceptual, theoretical and historical development of the MFA thesis exhibition. Formal group critiques are required at the midterm and end of the semester. A major final critique with visiting critics is held in the context of the final MFA Exhibition.

Building on an independently directed body of research, second year D+M students develop new, leading-edge approaches to sustainable artistic practice. Working independently and in consultation with their with a thesis committee, MFA candidates integrate conceptual and technical skills in order to articulate a polished, intellectually robust thesis project. This can take a variety of forms including experimental games, performance, video installation, interactive sculpture, speculative design and more.
