Hear Me Out: A Collaborative Installation Between Design Students & You

November 2–November 29, 2017 | Milner Library, Floor 2 café area

Artist talk back | November 2, 2017 at 4:30pm | Milner Library, Floor 2

Hear Me Out is an art installation that was done as a group project in Special Topics design class taught by Alice J. Lee. This installation will be up in Milner Library starting on November 2nd, 2017 and will remain open until the end of the month.

The project began as a proposal for a public interactive type-based installation that engages the student community with a positive message. Each student was asked to pitch an idea and then develop it. As a class, students narrowed down the ideas and executed one. The final choice was an idea brought to the class by a student, Amanda Hopkins, and was carried out by the whole class. Each student was asked to design their own version of “Hear Me Out” based off of a song. The class separated into small groups to work on specific parts of the installation such as the design, promotional side, instructions, etc.

The goal of this piece is to engage the community with a positive message. The piece not only asks for viewers to observe but to interact by adding their own positive message.

Visit Milner Library and take a note to get you through the day, the week, or beyond. Leave behind a quote, phrase, or song lyrics for others to enjoy. The project was inspired by another interactive art installation that was created by Studio Spass for an exhibition called Do It at Kunsthal Rotterdam 2015.

Organized by Alice Lee.
