Object Resonance is an exhibition showcasing new, emerging work by Pratt Institute’s Graduate Industrial Design students.  Marking the culmination of year-long thesis investigations, this show encapsulates a breadth of topics that reflect a dialogue about where the field of industrial design is going. The exhibition covers five themes relevant to design and living today: material and form; health and body; mind and spirit; personal and conceptual; and public and cultural.

More information about the work and the show can be found at www.objectresonance.tumblr.com.
