This November, ginza graphic gallery (ggg) will feature works of the 2011 Thesis students from SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS MASTERS OF FINE ARTS DESIGN PROGRAM.
IDEOPOLIS is the city of ideas; it is the culmination of two years of research, conception, development, fabrication and marketing unique and distinct original products and campaigns designed to add value to everyday life. IDEOPOLIS is the creative environment in which they individually and collaboratively invented and experimented with intellectual properties that have either commercial or social implications – or in the best cases, both. The products must be viable in the real world of commerce and ideas. They must have a quantifiable audience. They must fill a void. They must be original. They include campaigns, objects, videos, performances, digital experiences and apps.
This exhibit at the famed ginza graphic gallery is the first time IDEOPOLIS has left New York City. We hope that you will find the work as inspiring as we do. We believe that the entrepreneurial spirit and skill is in all designers.
