About the exhibition

Throughout our time at the School of Design, our class has embraced design as an endeavor to improve the way people connect, live, work, and play. We welcome you to Mind the Matter, our exhibition showcasing the myriad of ways we as a class have put this mindset into action and creation. Mind the Matter is a statement of purpose for our class. Mind references what truly matters to us: positively impacting people, uncovering and communicating challenges, and reflecting on perspectives we take for granted. Matter refers to the intent, materiality, and the process of making behind each work. Designing responsibly requires us to be mindful of underlying motivations and circumstances surrounding our work. It asks us to consider the thought processes we use, the materials we choose, and most importantly, the impact our design has in people’s lives. Each piece here was conceived, designed and crafted by students in the School of Design’s class of 2016. This is how we Mind the Matter.
