Art and Design Science

The Division of Composition offers basic studies in the field of molding. In other words, it does not necessarily expect research results to be of immediate practicality; and, encourages students to seek unique visual effects generated by molding.

The study objectives are highly diversified, including plane, relief, 3D, and space composition, as well as motion molding, irrespective of raw materials and media. Therefore, anyone who has learned molding professionally can enter this division as an option of a degree program, regardless of field.

The Production Study encourages students to seek molding methods that enable acquisition of innovative visual effects by carefully observing the basic elements of molding such as color, shape, materials, light, motion, etc. The Theory Study leads students to examine from a number of vantage points the innovative visual effects accomplished through the Production Study, based on analysis of related works as well as verification by literature review or experiments. One purpose of the Study of Composition is for students to accumulate and present knowledge thus gained, and to expand the base of formative expressions.
