M.Des. in Information Arts and Information Design Practice

Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology
Campus Full time 2 years July 2017 India Bangalore

The Information Arts and Information Design Course at Srishti will explore the idea that all data is narrative. Information is narrative, but with purposefulness. Stories craft our identity, they heal, inform, challenge and are the stuff of which our lives are made of. [+]

M.Des. in Information Arts and Information Design Practice We preserve and transmit culture, language and all historical record, whether myth or real, using the power of narrative. Narrative or stories that are not just the oral and the written, but in art, in dance, music and drama, embracing philosophy, history, politics, the environment and the social sciences. The Information Arts and Information Design Course at Srishti will explore the idea that all data is narrative. Information is narrative, but with purposefulness. Stories craft our identity, they heal, inform, challenge and are the stuff of which our lives are made of. Traditional boundaries of the narrative are constantly broken in the interfaces of the global and the local, the traditional and the contemporary. Access to information is making the physical boundaries of the world we live in permeable. With multiple screens, constant connectivity, social and mass media has taken on a completely new form. The narrative has become all-pervasive, whether it be complex data that is to be effectively disseminated to diverse audiences, using diverse media, or it be used as a tool for research with communities in flux. Within Spaces’ is a poetic journey through the picturesque landscape of the Andamans. Chaitali Pai has used watercolors to portray the fluidity of water and the wax paintings reveal the motions of sand and water during tides. From a knowledge-based society, the challenge is to move to a wisdom-based society. To this end, we seek to find ways to seamlessly draw from the essence and spirit of the jester, the bard and the wandering minstrels in our modern guises. In that, the Information Arts and Information Design program is about crafting oneself as a storyteller, a behroopiya, whose stories are crafted through the fine lenses of time and space, cultures and contexts, information, knowledge and the extraction of wisdom. An illustration from Anukriti Kedia's book that talks about the lives of Tibetan refugees living in Bylakuppe, India. Disciplines The program is informed by the following learning disciplines: Animation Contemporary Art Practices Digital Arts Experimental Media Arts Film Game Art, Design and Development Language Arts Textile Arts Mathematics and Physical Sciences Photography Design Management Human Centered Design Systems Design Information Technology Visual Communication Design Aesthetics and Critical Studies Cultural Studies Heritage and Conservation Public History Research and Collaboration The program is closely linked with a wide range research and practice spaces: Center for Education, Research, Training, and Development (CERTAD) Center for Public History (CPH) Design+Environment+Law Laboratory (DEL Laboratory) Srishti Films An illustration from Anukriti Arora's book, 'The Ginormous Friend', a children's book inspired from her interactions with the Tibetan community at Bylakuppe. Key Values The implications of design lie not so much in their ability to communicate as in the values that inform their conception. At IAIDP, the purpose of building a narrative and using it for communication is embedded in ethics and empathy, responsibility, deep understanding and an essential rooting of oneself in the environment. At IAIDP our work will be defined and informed by the values of: Empathetic Telling Ethical Engagement Responsible Dissemination Embodied Narration Ecological Awareness Course Structure Studios encourage active, contextual learning where students develop core disciplinary skills and knowledge.

M.Des. in Heritage Design, Planning & Management Identification of significant elements of architecture, buildings, sites – natural and cultural in Belur – academic exercise undertaken by Srishti student as part of SUI-Srishti Collaborative (Source: SUI-Srishti; Dr. Jyoti Hosagrahar) In a fast changing and rapidly globalizing world, the uniqueness and identity of place are becoming an important and non-renewable resource. Cultural and natural heritage are well-springs for both traditional and contemporary creative practices rooted in locality and place. How do we identify and assess the cultural (tangible and intangible) and environmental heritage of a place? How do we manage and protect these valuable resources? How can we improve such places and benefit their communities in ways that are compatible with the heritage values? How can places, their cultural and natural assets inform and inspire design and creative practices? How can we support local communities to manage their inheritance? Open to students in all design disciplines, the course aims to infuse a deep understanding of built and intangible cultural heritage and the natural environment in design. And enrich, interpret, plan, and integrate heritage places with sensitive and compatible design. The Master of Design in Heritage Design, Planning, and Management prepares students with the skills, knowledge, and tools to identify, document, evaluate, protect, manage, interpret cultural and natural heritage. They will plan creative solutions with minimal and sustainable interventions to improve basic infrastructure, presentation of places and their uniqueness to the benefit of local communities. Students also learn to derive knowledge and principles of design from cultural and natural heritage places to explore new ways that contemporary creative practices including architecture and urban design can be informed and enriched by history, culture, ecology, tradition, community, and craft. The program is a vibrant multidisciplinary platform for theoretical and practical engagement in context-specific fieldwork to engage a range of academic studies from architecture and urban design to the humanities, cultural geography, management, entrepreneurship, and tourism. The course is a program of the UNESCO Chair in Culture, Habitat, and Sustainable Development at Srishti. As such, students will gain familiarity with international (and national) norms and standards in heritage management including the World Heritage Convention. They will also explore new approaches to managing and designing with heritage to benefit local communities, plan better places, and nurture cultural entrepreneurship compatible with heritage values of particular places. Disciplines The program is informed by the following learning disciplines: Architecture and Urban Design Systems Design Curatorial Practices Research – Art and Design Ecology and Environment Urban and Regional Planning Research and Collaboration Students have opportunities to work within the academic structures and/or work across the following centers and labs: UNESCO Chair Srishti Films Design+Environment+Law Laboratory (DEL Laboratory) Bangalore Human Sciences Initiatives (BHSI) Center for Public History (CPH) The Kabir Project Cultural heritage mapping of Belur – assessing and mapping significance – academic exercise undertaken by Srishti student as part of SUI-Srishti Collaborative (Source: SUI-Srishti; Dr. Jyoti Hosagrahar) Key Values Cultural and natural heritage are valuable non-renewable resources The most important heritage values of cultural and natural heritage elements must be protected, nurtured, and presented according to international norms and standards.

Internship with an industry or a design studio is compulsory for students at the end of 1st year for M.Des. Self Initiated Project is an end of the semester challenge that allows the student to engage in research / enquiry or design based projects. Students begin by writing their project proposal and defining the scope of their project and they are mentored by faculty / design professionals. Electives are liberal arts courses aimed to cultivate intellectual and reflective abilities in students and motivate them to probe deeper and approach their design process in a holistic manner. Capstone Project is the culmination of the research, capabilities and knowledge gained over the last three semesters. Students are required to submit their design output and a mandated thesis document.
