The Wasteland exhibition showcases works of architecture, art, design, and writing produced by students in our five fall 2013 "Waste Land" courses (Architecture, Industrial Design, Diversity Studies, Sculpture, and Writing & Literature.

For Wasteland, five instructors from across the college are thematizing issues around waste in their course, and inviting a so called embedded scientist to come into the studio to provide science instruction relevant to their course.

The Waste Land curricular effort is part of CCA's Exploring Science in the Studio project (eS²), which aims to explore ways to meaningfully integrate science in art and design education.

The project is supported by an ongoing National Science Foundation grant designed to enrich the dialog between materials, aesthetics, skills, and the science of sustainability by allowing students to engage directly with embedded scientists in their studio classrooms.
