The MA Design: Explorations & Translations at the IAA brings together multiple practices: design, media studies, social sciences and natural sciences. By synthesising and embodying different knowledge and using the dynamic landscape and industries of Iceland as an experimental ground, you will develop a unique voice in the expanded design field.

To translate this personal vision, the MA Design Programme asks you to materialise and manifest possible realities through relevant media: you may e.g develop a concept for the industry, propose a new sensory experience, or craft a fictional scenario for a future reality. Using both real and fictional design strategies, we work to build ethical awareness, form dialogues to engage with contemporary culture.... [-]
