So happy to be invited again by our friend, Sarah Strauss, an innovative designer and professor at Pratt Institute School of Art & Design in Brooklyn, NY, to review her student’s work, along with our artist/architect friend, Jessica Jane Perkel. Each semester a fresh crop of students is asked to create a 3D wallpaper design which, ideally, is beautiful, engaging, clever, and technically feasible, with and without the iconic 3D glasses.
Not sure how we would approach the task, so it is always thrilling to see what gets pinned to the walls by these diversely talented students. This time, I was especially excited by the subject matter of the work. Thought was put into conveying a complex narrative, as well as designing a decorative pattern – with surprising elements like raining frogs, naked ladies, cassette tapes, corn kernels, microscopic bacteria, plastic bags and lace trim. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of the conversation!
