Project - "ALICE" Illustration Week
As part of Tel Aviv Illustration Week, students from both programs at the School of Design and Innovation created a three-dimensional and material illustrative interpretation of the question of Alice’s philosophical identity from Wonderland. As part of the project, the students were asked to deal with the problem of Alice’s identity and changing size, in the world of 3D and material illustration. Students created illustrations in the material that show Alice changing in the layer between reality and imagination and in the different spaces of time, with reference to the central philosophical problem in the work, the problem of personal identity.
Preservation and Documentation of Buildings Workshop
Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed Tel Aviv’s White City a World Cultural Heritage site, as “an outstanding example of new town planning and architecture in the early 20th century.” The citation recognized the unique adaptation of modern international architectural trends to the cultural, climatic, and local traditions of the city.
In this workshop the students prepare a documentation portfolio of chosen old historical buildings. This portfolio details the historical-cultural and architectural information of the building and site, starting with general data and closely looking to the details of the restored building. During the workshop students have site visits to Bauhaus buildings as well as other significant historical structures.
