Realisation of Final Prototype

Students are required to realise a prototype of a plastic product/object. The material to be used for the final prototype will be recycled plastic from NYUAD campus. There will not be any budget for the realisation of the prototype. Students are supposed to only use recyled materials! Group size will be 3 students/group. The final prototype will be presented by the student group during an exhibition opening. The exhibition features the developed prototype for several weeks.

About the exhibition:

  1. We will TOGETHER set up the exhibition in the A5 foyer (in front of the AMW) on Thursday, January 23rd. Time to be defined. Every hand is needed!
  2. Download and go through this PDF
  3. Each individual/project group has to create a poster about the presented project/artwork using the following template. Students: You will have to print the poster in the library. The library guys will ask for an email by the teacher – please just show them this text, which states that you have to print this poster as part of a course.
  4. Cut your poster perfectly to the size of 48x48cm (And I mean 48×48 cm. I will measure it!). You are supposed to place the poster on an empty black pedestal (size of the pedestal is 50x50cm), and fix the position using Blu Tack. You are not allowed to use any other sticky stuff rather than Blu Tack. No sticky tape, nor double-sided tape!
  5. Place your prototype of a plastic product onto your poster at the predefined area.
