17 students from the Industrial Design and Graphic Design programs at OCAD University feature their self-authored work-in-progress through print, prototypes, and full scale models. The projects raise questions and respond to global issues through visual, physical, and interactive outcomes. Reflecting the varied passions of students, topics include urban agriculture, gender equality, cosmology, immigration, and automation.
The exhibition is mounted with an intention to engage the public, such that conversation and observation may be thoughtfully integrated into graduation projects: a culmination of four years of study within a Bachelor of Design at OCAD University.
Visitors to the exhibition will find students working in the space, which has been created to foster collaborative opportunities across the Industrial Design and Graphic Design departments at OCAD University.
