Souvenirs and Brooklyn

Souvenirs and Brooklyn are the central themes of my project. Through reading and interviews, I’ve been investigating some of the ideas related to souvenirs: place, narrative, scale, nostalgia and desire are a just a few. I am using Brooklyn as a sort of case study to inspire design experiments (and provide a reason to hang out in Coney Island).


Since college, where my major was Geography, I’ve spent most of my time trying to make designers’ ideas come true in the form of props and displays. I’ve really enjoyed my time here at Pratt learning about where those ideas come from.
