The Cool Story Exhibition
Museum Exhibition Design – The University of Oklahoma
This is the concept of an exhibition about the taxonomy of the cool. I decided to call this exhibition “The Cool Story Exhibition” and focus my work on the music. For each country and given decade, what artists were considered as “cool”? Are they still “cool” today? Would you like to find out who is your cool look-alike celebrity? Printed panels and digital screens would bring to life the content of this exhibition.
In Vitro Meat
Design as a Cognitive Artifact – North Carolina State University
Consumption of meat in the United States is on the rise with projections suggesting that it will reach a record high in 2018 of 200 pounds of beef, pork, and/or chicken a year per capita. While American consumption of meat increases, people in developing nations are also consuming meat several times a week.
With sustainability issues challenging industrialized animal agriculture, in vitro meat could be a potential solution. This approach produces meat in a more humane way while still meeting demand. Researchers disagree over whether in vitro meat production is a better and more sustainable production system; however, it provides an interesting topic to explore the acceptance of an idea.
I position in vitro meat production within the narrative realm to introduce schemas that provide information on aspects of in vitro meat production. My narrative takes place in a future era where people’s receptivity, as defined by David Rose’s Audience Receptivity Gradient, ranges from accepting ideas to becoming an advocate for the cause. What if in vitro meat production has matured to the point that it is commonplace?
Presidential Dream Course
Instructional Video Series Introduction – The University of Oklahoma
In 2004-2005, President David Boren of The University of Oklahoma began a program to provide extra funds to enhance courses. These funds provide up to a maximum of $20,000 in one-time funds per selected course to bring in several experts in the field during the semester to interact with the students enrolled in the course and to give a lecture open to the public. In some cases, the visiting expert might also speak at a Presidential roundtable discussion that would include other undergraduate students and faculty.
