Best Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in India 2017. M.Des. in Public Space Design Students displaying their work from a public space design course, which explored Urban Planning through mapping. Course: Making Places Public places are sometimes the sites for conflict of race, class, gender and economics. But they are also places of synergy and the collective where individuals and communities can interact with each other. In the Indian context where pastoral communities consider grasslands as common land that everyone’s cattle can graze in or streets that become make shift markets where street vendors have traditionally congregated to sell their produce. With emerging technologies such as the Internet of things and cloud computing we will increasingly connect everyone and everything in a seamless network, further blurring the boundaries between public and private. All of this adds varied dimensions to the word “public”. It is critical to understand this changing dynamic of public space.

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.

We thrive in lively debates, dialogue, sensitive and ethical questioning on a range of issues We encourage independent and self motivated learning Devangana Dash's colorful illustrations from her book 'Jungle Radio', which looks at birdcalls and the music of the Bandipur forest.

The School of Historical Studies encourages collaborative research with students and faculty from affiliated universities and institutions, study abroad experience, and training in an Indian and/or a foreign language.
