Creative Media 2020 Students Present Their Online Capstone Projects

After transitioning to online classes, Creative Media students in the Class of 2020 shifted gears from creating their art pieces with hands-on tools and help to online communication and creation. Their work consists of sound design, digital and traditional art, and many others.

Take a look at some of this year’s projects.

When The Forest Burned – Katherine Boone

Creative Media senior Katherine Boone’s series titled, “When the Forest Burned,” stems from a personal narrative and consists of multiple concept art designs, map designs, and hand-sewn cloaks and chest plates. She wanted to create a world that puts off a childhood sense of magic and explore their new worlds.

The Flying Blind Collection – Patrick Nichols

Patrick Nichols, ’20 // Creative Media, created Flying Blind for his capstone project, with the intention of incorporating the upcoming unknown that fellow graduating seniors are facing. He wanted his capstone to encompass art inspired by 1920s and 1930s carton and designs, but with his own personal spin on things. Patrick hopes to one day have a clothing collection of his own.

Artificial – Anastasia Coen

With audio created by Jameson Hunt, Anastasia Coen, ’20 // Creative Media, created a short narrative combining poetry and AI-generated face images to create a visual equalization to what it feels like when she creates her art and lives day-to-day life.
