Over the past century, and acceleratedly so during recent decades, visuality has become pervasive in all aspects of life due to the proliferation of media based communication devices which can be observed to have a strong basis in visuality. Thus the mission of the VACD program is to provide the student with an in-depth understanding of visuality and its applications to the domains of Visual Art and Visual Communication Design. However, our efforts go beyond a sole understanding / application of the visual fields themselves in that we also seek to bring about their integration with other creative output such as sound design, new media output and temporally based works implemented through the diversified building blocks of our curriculum.

Reflections of the Memory is a collection of artworks combining the traditional printmaking techniques with the analog and digital photography. The old photographs from the 80s found after 30 years in the family album were a starting point of creating the collection of intaglio prints based on memories. The prints made in the aquatint and etching printmaking techniques are the symbolic reflections of the analog photographs. The works presented at the exhibition are the digital prints based on the intaglio prints combined with the photographic source material as well as with the contemporary photographs of the author connected to the idea of artistic creation and searching for her own identity. The context for the artistic research is the relation between the dimension of time and memory, in which the transience and passing intertwine with the the durability and timelessness captured in the photographic frames.
