Student Status



hethat emerged from one of the oldest known civilizations, ancient Egypt, originally called Kemet. Matching the evolution of yoga in India, Kemetic yoga is the practice of physical movements combined with controlled deep breathing and meditation. It is used to heal and regenerate the human body by using a series of postures that are similar to geometric shapes, which helps align the spinal column and correct the muscular system. Also, it helps in relieving stress and improving the blood circulation and oxygen supply in the human body. It was first discovered and developed by Dr.Asar Hapi and master Yirser Ra Hotep (Elvrid Lawrence) of chicago in the 1970s. It was developed by studying, translating and interpreting the commonly called hieroglyphic texts of Kemet, ancient Egypt, and the images of yogic postures that are clearly pictured on the walls of the Kemetic temples. It is, both, philosophy and a practice based upon the Kemetic system of self-development that fueled the creation of the Kemetic civilization that generated western science, philosophy and religion.

This project is part of “ Zoom in Keda- Fourth Graduating Class of Graphic Design Students-The American University in Cairo – Class 2018-2019” catalog. Several global cities have acquired an international rep¬utation as design education hubs by acknowledging the importance of education planning and early learning ex¬periences through providing a structured career path and aligning design skills with the economy’s various needs. Our 8 years old Graphic Design program at the Ameri¬can University in Cairo aims to follow the same strategy, mentoring students on how to channel their creativity and knowledge into reshaping their communities, leaving a positive imprint on their society. Four design segments have been commonly defined in the MENA region’s design sector; namely: Graphic Design, Fashion Design, Interior Design, and Industrial/Product Design. The title for the fourth design seniors show was “Zoom in Keda “. As with the previous 3 exhibitions, the title builds on the graphic design language in Egyptian vernacular cul¬ture. “Zoom in Keda” is a commonly used phrase in the de¬sign field, told when one wishes to examine the micro de¬tails of a design on screen. The exhibition was held at the AUC Sharjah Art Gallery on December 2nd, 2018, where bachelor projects completed by the fourth graduating class of Graphic Design students were displayed.
