Product Design Senior Show

May 13, 2015

The second class to graduate from our Product Design program will present a raft of senior projects that offer viable solutions to a range of issues, from public education to environmental concerns. They’ve spent the past seven months developing theses that seek to make positive changes in the world, and will present their work at the senior show on June 5th and 6th in the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery (3401 Filbert Street), with an opening reception on Friday, June 5th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. Click here to see the full array of projects that will be on exhibit, from a digital platform that deepens the engagement of art museum-goers to transportable and reusable food containers that limit waste creation.

Keepsake, by Stephanie Kovacs, is a system that augments the physical process of viewing art and enhances viewer engagement, and EATSENTIALS is Apollonia Heinz’s reusable container and maintenance system. Connor White’s Smart Faucet offers a sustainable water purification and a water information-sharing system for the home, and Maria Ottenstein’s Stratify serves public school students by supporting focus and building understanding through visual organization. BeeThere, from Minsu Jin, is a short-distance navigation tool that connects travelers between different types of public transportation; Sean Preston’s professional navigation platform, Osmosis, provides personalized career discovery tools to high school students; Mai Lu’s Artists’

App is an online platform that connects artists to resources and to one another; and Max Solomon’s Synesthesia is a system that connects’ individuals’ location experiences to their emotions, guiding users toward increased local comfort zones and self-actualization.
