Prattfolio Fal/Winter 2009 "Spaces Issue"
At Pratt, space is considered alongside color and light to be one of the fundamental elements of art and design. Whether developing small live/work spaces for creative professionals downsizing with the economy, transforming blank walls into expansive scenes with trompe l’oeil techniques, adapting cherished historic buildings for new uses, or creating facilities that enhance occupants’ moods and behavior, Pratt alumni approach space in inventive and inspiring ways—to the delight and benefit of thousands. In addition to working in the traditional realms associated with space, digital arts students, faculty, and alumni are moving into new dimensions. Their creations challenge our very notion of space as something we can occupy, organize, and put boundaries around.
