about media design study

The representation of today’s art and design has shifted from a mechanistic structure to a cognitive form, which stimulates human senses more naturally and invisibly. In the excessively artificial environment of today, more legible and tangible design is needed. While understanding the traditional production and visualization methods in the field of computing media, we needs to come up with another design system that takes advantages of computing media. The positive relationship between every product design and its user is determined by a well-developed interface that simulates legible and tangible senses. In order to improve the usability in every design and product, we aim to apply concepts and theories in the fields of psychology and cognitive science. The member of Media Design lab is researching based on that concept.
