Project 3: Experimental Design, Writing, Publishing

Working with Creative Writing faculty Michelle Taransky, the project should unmask, reveal and interpret observations of urban space and situations. Students will be responsible to collectively frame the project, write short texts, and design/publish the resulting visual/textual material.
