On December 9th at MICA, Inna Alesina spoke about her Bread Zoo and demonstrated how to make bread from scratch. The event took place during Interaction, Intersection, Action. Students and MICA visitors learned how to make the dough and took it home to bake. Bread Zoo’s goal is to build community through hands on experiences and design.

Inna Alesina's Communication Design class visited and collaborated with Irvine Nature center. The students interacted with children to design an educational toy that will help them engage with learning. The class’ goal is to practice participatory design and co-create with children. The students tested experiments and observed how pre-school children responded and engaged with them. Students plan to use the information they gathered and use it to help develop their toy designs.

The screening of The Illusionists, a documentary film about the globalization of beauty ideals and how those ideals have effected society, drew in a large crowd on September 28th.  Lori Rubeling served as the moderator for the event. After the screening, panelists Dina Fiasconaro, Soheila Gaussy, Heather Harris, Sehlah Khalid Butt, Laura Smith and Geetha Suresh answered questions raised by The Illusionists. They invited the audience to speak about their experiences with body image as well as sharing their own stories.

The film is not available to the public yet. For more information, visit http://theillusionists.org/

Amelia Berninger (left) and Samantha Smith (right) are the winners for the PNC bank scholarship and will work with clients from Mercy Hospital under the guidance of Meggen Marx (center). For this project, Amelia and Samantha will design onesies that “promote the importance of preparing children, particularly undeserved children, for success in school during the first five years of their life.” The onesies will then be distributed to new mothers at Mercy Hospital.

Inspired by Vietnamese basket boats, these fun boats are beginning to make a splash in the market. VCD professor Inna Alesina collaborated with the creators to develop prototypes of the boat structure out of materials such as pool noodles and plastic sheeting.
