Design students create a new look for time
at California State University, Sacramento are taking time into their own hands,
creating clocks that represent famous designers and their works. A display of
the timepieces, the Tic Toc Clock Exhibition, runs from Friday, Nov. 14 to Thursday,
Nov. 20 in the Design Gallery, Mariposa Hall 4000. A reception will be held
12:45 to 1:45 p.m. on Nov. 20.
Tic Toc Clock
Pable says forty students enrolled in her introduction to design class first
research a “design hero” or well-known practitioner of architecture
or interiors. Then, the students create clocks that represent the designers
or their art. Pable says some of the designers symbolized are Michael Graves,
Phillippe Starck, Mies Van Der Rohe, and Frank Gehry.
The University‘s department of design includes classes and field study
projects for nearly 500 students enrolled in the graphic design, interior design,
and photography programs.
