As filmmaker, I ask questions but don't have answers. Moviemaking is a philosophical exploration. I invite the audience to come on the journey and discover what they think and feel. - David Cronenberg

Media Design Meets Luxor

In this semester GUC faculties are asked to cooperate with the government of Luxor, in order to create concepts to improve the branding and image of Luxor. The Media Design department is running the “pilot project” on behalf of the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Arts. Within our three courses “Interaction Design”, “Montage” and “Media Installation”, our students will explore topics, create concepts and possibly merge together the three courses. For this reason our students and the supervisors will travel to Luxor from 26th to 30th of March, 2017.
