  • Alex Israel

    More
    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Otis Fashion - Costume Design Emphasis

Senior student, JieQi Ren, under 2012 Senior mentor, Cirque du Soleil. Direction: Create a collection inspired by the elements.

 

Story-driven ideas are at the core of our costume curriculum with a focus on new directions in character development for film, television, live performance, concept art, and video.  Building off a rigorous process of developing and editing ideas that address specific design challenges, spectacular works inspired by historical and cultural influences, story structure, and character development are conceived and constructed through traditional and cutting-edge methods.   Students emerge from the Costume Design program as relevant, creative professionals prepared for the future direction of this exciting field.
