Exhibition shows sustainability of student designs

10 Nov 2021

From brightly coloured wall art to skeleton and skull props to bold branding on water bottles and T-shirts, a new exhibition at the USC Art Gallery displays the diverse work of final-year Design students.

The immersive exhibition, ‘Tiny Details: USC Design 2021’, explores the idea that small actions can make a big difference, with many focusing on sustainability and climate action.

Works by more than 100 USC students include augmented reality design, illustrations, projections, interactive media, photography and games.

Lecturer in Design Dr Leah Barclay said the theme “aims to draw attention to the details that we sometimes miss”.

Design at USC is a versatile interdisciplinary program that equips students with theoretical knowledge, creative skills, cultural awareness and critical thinking to imagine and shape a future that is changing rapidly by design,” Dr Barclay said.

“Through project-based learning and collaborations, students discover the increasingly important role design plays in the world, with opportunities to specialise in interactive media, digital culture, game design or visual communication.”

The exhibition is open to the public at the USC Art Gallery on the Sunshine Coast campus until Saturday 13 November.
