Two opposing views in recent philosophical history disagree on how our reality and experiences in this world are based and shaped. French theorist Jean Baudrillard refers to the complex communication structure of our high-tech information age as the hyperreal. Authors Suzi Gablik and Ellen Dissanayake, however, vehemently challenge this view, contending that language only came after human culture was deeply embedded with meaning-making due to our desire to bond as humans.
This action research project seeks to discover whether or not students in a graphic design class can feel a sense of connectedness and relevance to their community and natural environment while participating in a community-based design project, directly related to the natural landscape and, hence, counteracting the effects of the so-called hyperreal.
