Design Students Featured in Online Exhibition
Interisland Terminal is proud to present: Moving Histories: Type in Motion, a ground breaking flash animation online exhibition which is available for viewing on December 9th, 2009. Moving Histories depicts pivotal and dramatic moments in world history by graphic design students from the Digital Design Art 400 class taught by professor Chae Ho Lee. Visually and conceptually adventurous the exhibit features seven animations from these seven emerging designers: John Cruz, Daniel Park, Angelica Rabang, Michelle Saoit, Aki Takebayashi, Jimmy Tran, and Hiromi Zimmerman.
These designers explored complex and sometimes tragic events in history from Hiroshima to 9/11. " The designers were asked to use only text and a limited palette of colors in their designs. The important role and creative potential of typography in an online project should never be ignored. These projects are to be read and experienced." says Chae Ho Lee.
Wei Fang , Interisland Terminal's curator of Contemporary Art and Design comments " The relationship between Interisland Terminal and UH's Department of Art and Art History represented by this exhibition is almost as exciting as the works in the exhibition itself. We are working together to develop a dynamic pipeline of opportunities for young, emerging artists and designers in our community."
