Forever the Change - Online Exhibition of MA Design Master-Thesis Projects of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design

At the Institute Integrative Design | Masterstudio Design at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design, students from different disciplines and cultural backgrounds come together. Their perspectives shape a multifaceted view of the challenges of our time: the need for sustainable action, the influence of digitalisation on our coexistence and the economy, as well as the effects of social transformations are the resonating space of design.

By designing forward-looking products and processes, Master's graduates position themselves in a rapidly changing world. In their Master-Theses, applied research approaches and insights from theory merge with design and technical knowledge.

Annika Albrecht, for example, systematically explores the challenges of integrating digital technologies in textile and fashion design with «I am not there» by using 3D tools in the patterning process.

Helge Brackmann's work explores the question of what an algorithm understands about the images we upload to social media. With «Latent_presences» he is looking for a way to understand processes in our digital world through our own bodies and to make the space between real and artificially generated realities tangible.

In his project «Behind the surfaces», Matthias Maurer deals with the contactless measurement of surfaces by means of digital photogrammetry - from cumulus clouds and anthropogenic smoke clouds to weathered stones and concrete chunks of demolished houses.

In addition to these works, other recent graduation projects by Annika Albrecht, Helge Brackmann, Valeria Ballek, Claudia Epiney, Dschafar El Kassem, Wanda Gysin, Ingmar Haudenschild, Beatrice Ledergerber, Matthias Maurer, Kihako Narisawa, Margherita Parri, María Ruiz Cozcolluela, Roger Zimmermann and Robert Zumkeller will be presented.
