AUK GDES Students Showcase their Work at ISEA2014 Dubai

Two Graphic Design students from the American University of Kuwait (AUK) participated in the International Symposium on Electronic Art Conference and Exhibition (ISEA2014) held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Abdulaziz Al-Hoqal and Bashayer Al-Zayed submitted posters that were selected to be exhibited at the conference. Their posters were displayed at the American University of Dubai, Zayed University, as well as other participating universities in Dubai, throughout the duration of the conference.

Abdulaziz submitted an entry entitled "Engines of Difference" for the category "Technology, Science & Art". His piece consisted of a set of interactive posters that display virtual, 3D content once viewed through the lens of a smartphone camera. Meanwhile, Bashayer's entry came in the form of an infographic poster for the "Connecting Worlds/Linking Ideas" category. Her poster, Social Media Usage in the Middle East, displayed a ranking of the popularity of social media outlets amongst countries in the Middle East.

"Being such an important international conference and exhibition, and the fact that our students were the only ones from Kuwait who attended, and actually participated in, ISEA2014, is a testimony to the Art & Graphic Design Department of AUK," said Professor Rita Merheb, Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at AUK. "This gave us very good exposure in the region, especially since our department is relatively new. This puts us on equal grounds with other, much older and well-established Art & Graphic Design departments of universities in the region," she explained.
