Mr. Cameron Van Dyke


  • Master of Fine Arts, Design, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.

Teaching and Research Interest(s)

  • Cameron’s teaching and research is based on the use of design to make positive social change. His work seeks to discover new sustainable solutions and to inspire the public to embrace necessary alternatives. He does this by actually living out these experiments – building his own sustainable dwelling and transportation – and then sharing these directly with students and the public by inviting them to participate in the projects. Cameron believes that the best way to a sustainable future is to demonstrate that it is not only possible, but it is desirable!
