More than Belts

Students began their Embracing Excess: The Belt Project in fall 2012, and many of the projects were exhibited in CCA's Waste Land exhibition that showcased works of architecture, art, design, and writing. Works were produced by students in the college's five "Waste Land" courses (Interior Design, Interaction Design, Diversity Studies, Sculpture, and Visual Studies).

For Waste Land, five instructors from across the college addressed issues around waste in their courses, and invited an “embedded scientist” to come into the studio to provide science instruction relevant to the theme of waste.

The Waste Land program aims to explore ways to meaningfully integrate science in art and design education.
