On Saturday, 24 May 2014, Mr. Kingsley Ng and Mr. Peter Benz introduced the MVA (Experience Design) to a crowd of more than 80 people at the OCT Loft in Shenzhen, China. We we’re accompanied by our alumni Ms. Agnes Lee, who introduced her XD-projects “Taste Buddhism” and “Follow your Nose”. We also could pass around samples of “Emotion Jam” as thankfully provided by our current students Jane Ng and Hong Liu.
For the first 30 minutes of the talk the AC of the venue didn’t work, and we were all sweating at 40+ degrees in the dark, but even then no-one left, which may be taken as an indication of the audience’s dedication.
7 graduates of the MVA (Experience Design) were invited together with Mr. Kingsley Ng, our XD-lecturer, to develop an experience for a moving double-storey tram. They proposed to turn the interior of the tram into a walk-in camera obscura that travels along the narrow streets of Hong Kong Island, day and night.
Today this experience opened to the public as part of the Detour 2013.
This afternoon AVA soft-opened its first ever programme in mainland China, the MVA (Experience Design), in Shenzhen. Essentially an exact replica of its sister programme in Hong Kong it will be delivered on the campus of Shenzhen University as a two-year part time programme. The initial cohort of 2013 – nine students from a variety of design backgrounds – took up their first class on practice-based research methodologies right after the welcome ceremony.
