Yuichiro Nishizawa

Yuichiro Nishizawa is an associate professor and the chair of the Division of Creative Arts & Technology.

Professor Nishizawa attended Rhode Island School of Design (BFA in Film/Animation/Video) and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Post-Baccalaureate Certificate and MFA in Art and Technology).

Working with the diverse population of students and like-minded peers at Bloomfield College fuels Nishizawa. He regards his position as a privilege. He is “committed to the practice of knowledge as trans-disciplinary, teaching/learning as non-hierarchical, experiential and collaborative, and education as critical reflection, liberation and social action.”

He has enjoyed teaching regularly the following classes:

  • Design Thinking & Practice
  • Interaction & Interface: Introduction to Physical Computing
  • Process && Interaction: An Introduction
  • Japanese Culture and Language
  • Post-Studio: Collaboration
  • Geographies of Experience

Nishizawa, born in Tokyo, is interested in the complexity of the technological influences on and beyond everyday experience. He employs a wide array of media and methods in his work and inquiry. His hope is to provide an experience that brings the viewer to questions, furthers their own spirit of inquiry, engages their curiosity, and prompts them to imagine. His innate interest in function and form, conjoined with his investigation, has also led him to pursue furniture design and fabrication.
