From June 5 to June 7, a series of exquisite and creative works were exhibited at Sanda. Forty-three pieces of works, made from water materials, were the coursework of third-year students majoring in environmental art.
Combining the theme of World Environment Day, i.e., co-constructing a green land, students spent more than one month collecting waste materials and making them into exquisite works. The use of waste materials exhibits instructors’ and students’ emphasis on protecting people’s living environment. Regarding environmental facility as an important research object in public space design, School of Art and Design aims to improve students’ practical design abilities and help them build team spirits. Instructor Yuan Jinhui said that students were persistent in finishing their works even though they were faced with several problems.For example, there were cases when team members disagreed with each other. In addition, some of the designs were highly demanding and took a long period to be handmade.He introduced that through this activity, students could broaden their horizon and realize that environmental facility could not only have strong utility function, but also serve as “dressing” in public space.
