Humanistic Perspectives on the Arts: Multiplicity, Problems in Graphic Design & Topology

Philip Ording and David William Reinfurt

Back to "Spring 2021" courses

In this course, students explore graphic design from the vantage point of topology and topology through the practice of graphic design. We investigate topology at the junctions of surface, network, and set, illustrating the schematic nature of these configurations, as they appear in the context of certain problems in modern and contemporary graphic design. Such as, how to render figures that take multiple forms? Student design work and topological experiments are guided through class prompts, readings, and discussion. No particular experience in design or mathematics required.
