Design in Conversation
The 2009 Senior Design Exhibition
May 9 - 30, 2009
"It has been said that 'design is [a way of] making sense of things' and this may ultimately be the best way to define such an all-encompassing practice. Students studying in this program are taught to observe and respond to the cultural, socio/economic, material, political, geographic and temporal environments. These are the ethical designers of the future, who will imbue our environments with depth, texture and meaning."
– Gloria Lee, Associate Professor & Assistant Chair of Design
The University of Texas at Austin, Design class of 2009 presents this senior exhibition as the culmination of their three-years of study.
Visitors will experience a variety of projects grappling with issues from body image to historical homage, from philosophical introspection to global crises.
