Students from the FACS 200 Interior Design course worked together to design projects that physically moved while celebrating one or more tenants of Gestalt Theory. Projects were displayed in the Jerry Falwell Library, and students from the Nature's Scale, The Domino Effect, Stormy Day, The View, Project Runway, We Hold the Light, Simplicity Back to the Basics, Cape Horn, La Medusa, Passive Closure, and Swing into Spring groups gave presentations on their work on April 5, 2022, in the library.

The assignment was to create a project that physically moves while celebrating one or more of the tenants of Gestalt Theory.

Gestalt Theory consists of principles/laws of human perception that describe how humans group similar elements, recognize patterns, and simplify complex images when we perceive objects.

Designers use the principles to organize content on websites and other interfaces so it is aesthetically pleasing and easy to understand.

Each project began with a mind map to generate ideas, followed by: the Programming Phase to discover materials and explore interpretations of Gestalt Theory, the Schematic and Design Development Phase to create plans for the proposed ideas, and finally, the Contract Administration Phase to fabricate the design and put the project on display.
