Seven master’s degree candidates from Pratt Institute’s Department of Industrial Design will present their thesis work on Friday, December 9 from 4 to 6:30 PM in Pratt Studios, Room 43 in the Juliana Curran Terian Design Center on Pratt’s Brooklyn campus. The presentations, titled “Future Artifacts,” include explorations of objects, environments, systems, and interactions within the public, personal, material, and conceptual worlds we live in and reflect the efforts of yearlong thesis investigations into the future of design. Each presentation will last approximately 20 minutes.

The presentations will be followed by a reception, with an exhibition of work from each of the presenters, in the Juliana Curran Design Center Gallery, located on the second floor of the Juliana Curran Terian Design Center.

Pratt’s graduate industrial design program is nationally recognized as one of the highest-ranking programs of its kind. “Future Artifacts” will showcase innovative work from the program and will offer the community a chance to see the ingenuity and creativity of emerging designers.
