Biographical / Historical
The Metaproject competition was developed by the educator Josh Owen in partnership with an industry sponsor to encourage students to produce design that "is semantically correct, and pragmatically understandable, but also visually powerful, intellectually elegant and timeless." In the case of Metaproject 02, in collaboration with Corning Museum of Glass (CMoG), the students were given the task of creating a product that takes advantage of glass as a primary material.
2 Linear Feet (Oversized box)
The Andrew Miller Metaproject Collection consists of all the process work for the development of The Desktop White Noise Generator by Andrew Miller, and a book which describes Metaproject 02 and all the student designs.
The prototype is in an oversized box. Design book is stored seperately.
