MFA Thesis Exhibition

Graduate Communications Design Department
Pratt Institute

Punctuation marks serve to clarify relationships between words and sentences. Symbols are representative of materials and concepts, especially ones that are abstract. The 2016 Pratt Graduate Communications Design MFA thesis exhibition, (Within)—Between., highlights the process of drawing abstract relationships between eighteen distinct points of view.

As the position of design in contemporary society becomes increasingly multi-dimensional, the designer is left to clarify their own parameters. The collection of thesis investigations presented in this year’s exhibition follow no underlying theme, other than what lies in the transitions—within and between designers’ research topics; within and between the gallery and the outside world; within and between the individual designer and a larger public; and within and between an MFA program and the continuation of a design practice.
