Exhibition

In partnership with the DNP Foundation for Cultural Promotion, Seian University of Art and Design has held an exhibition based on a collaboration between 4th-year students, graduates, and faculty members from Seian University’s Graphic Design Course.

The exhibition is titled “.communication” (dot communication), and students, graduates, and faculty members will engage as equals on an exciting topic that students face in common: “communication gaps.” The participants will create and present works from various perspectives on this theme.
Recently, there has been a clamor about the problems of the “post-truth” society, and we hope you will eagerly anticipate the attempt by these young people to playfully reconceive—through design and expression—the optimal approach to communication and transmission of information.

Event Concept

Today, we can obtain huge volumes of information. We have learned that all sorts of people live in the various regions of the world, and that there is all sorts of corresponding information.
The information accessible is too vast, and there are limits on the amount of information a single human being can digest. It’s impossible to understand it all.

A certain piece of information is like a tree. To learn about it, some people reach for the leaves, while others reach for the branches and fruit.
Even though they all try to learn about the same tree, they touch different parts, and, in the end, there are differences in the amount and quality of what they obtain.
This is where the aforementioned “gaps” are generated.

People meet halfway to fill in those gaps, or recognize that such gaps exist.
We decided to acknowledge that this is the very essence of “communication.”

The “.communication” (dot communication) exhibition is an attempt to connect our perspectives of learning about communication and design with the “.” (dot), and to find—through the exhibited works—the various gaps between things, people, and circumstances.
