Exhibit, Publication & Website
Supersaturated
  

Supersaturated was an exhibit featuring work by the 2024 graduating class of the Rhode Island School of Design’s graphic design MFA program. The show’s theme was inspired by the Louis Rosetto quote, “in the age of information overload, the ultimate luxury is meaning and context.”




        The exhibit was created using tiled images cut from the show’s XL newspaper publication, and the setup included a table displaying graduate thesis books as well as an interactive piece that enabled visitors to manipulate the width of the type with hand motions. This responsive typographic approach is echoed online at supersaturated.net, and is also expressed across all print applications of the show’s identity.


        The show’s collaborative print publication asked designers from the graduating class to respond to Rosetto’s quote using a method, theme, or piece of content from their thesis. Each designer was restricted to either photography, typography, or graphics as a medium, and each submitted one single spread. The center of the publication doubles as the exhibition poster.





        Supersaturated was designed and executed in collaboration with Clinton Van Arnam, Lydia Chodosh, and Kaela Kennedy. And all students from the RISD GD MFA 2024 graduating cohort participated in the production and installation of the physical show.
