Conceptual Design: Independent Final Project

OBJECTIVE:

Propose a topic, research the topic, build a body of work, develop a process through which that work is accomplished. Communicate what is interesting about the work by embedding your point of view/argument within the work. Document design process and project evolution and publish final design on blog as an illustrated narrative about the project experience (approx. 500 words) and give a 5-minute talk.

CONCEPT:

There are 25, life-size wooden # “Hashtags.” Each # will be marked with a unique item number #01–25. It will also be marked with the project’s various social media identities, at least one of which should be tagged to your documentation of the project. This design project aims to make tangible of a historic typographical mark, one which has been redefined as a key symbol of contemporary language and culture. You. The public is the primary participant in this objective. The Hashtag Project is a public initiative that requires interactivity in the physical world as well as through social media.
