Continuum Creation Process
Behind every design project there is process, and every process starts with a concept. Back in February, the students developed, in groups, seven strong proposals for the grad show, and the winning concept was Continuum. After that decision was made, the class was divided up into seven teams — each student had to apply for the team that most represented their skills and interests. Finally, once the teams were defined, the class had 5 weeks to put in the work and explore new technologies to create the beautiful and functional virtual space that is the Continuum Grad Show.

Architecture & Experience (Design Formation) is the team behind the experience of the Continuum virtual space — they designed the floor plan and built the greybox model that was later transformed into the immersive exhibit. Members: Victoria Clarke (Lead), Aaron Philipp, Asuka Moriwaki, Jocelyn Kwan, Tolou Abdolrazaghi.
Architecture & Experience (Photography) was in charge of developing the narrative and the architectural space of the Photography Department’s exhibit, while staying under the Continuum overall concept. Members: Cynthia San (Lead), Victor Camerino.
Content & Curation played a big role in solidifying the concept and narrative of the exhibit and in selecting and gathering all the content to be displayed in the virtual space and on the Continuum website. Members: Lara Fortuna (Lead), Ai Takiguchi, Jeremeah Bisa, Karen Unnsteinsdottir, Taro Wood.
Graphics & Marketing was responsible for creating the look and feel of the show. The team designed environmental graphics for the virtual space, as well as brand standards, promotional materials and invitations. Members: Angela Aguilar (Lead), Ana Rivera, Bel Lui, Casey Castaneda, Emma Heckman, Madeleine Finch.
Web Design and Development was in charge of designing and producing a website well-aligned with the Continuum identity that provided access to the virtual space and to the students’ portfolios. Members: Manu Leite (Lead), Asya Hemsworth, Zoey Nguyen.
Production was responsible for building the final 3D model and optimizing the virtual reality space alongside Active Replica, implementing everything required for a functional immersive gallery environment. Members: Xander Adams (Lead), Jacob Chong.
