  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a reactive experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

She spent her childhood in the countryside outside Philadelphia where she attended a girls’ school that emphasized music, drama, and art in addition to academics. She studied at La Sorbonne in Paris and earned a Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College in New York, followed by a Masters in Education from Harvard University in Massachusetts.

Academic Excellence: Caroline Fullerton

Impact on your Work/Life?
My four years have undoubtedly given me all the skills and tools I need to realize my dream as a product designer; but even more so, Otis has shaped who I am (as friend, sister, daughter) in unimaginable ways.


Hometown?
I was born in Hørsholm, Denmark, and moved to Beaverton, Oregon, with my family. I consider both my hometowns.


Why Otis?
I was drawn to Otis’ energy, location, and people.
 

Your thesis project?
I believe that when people feel comfortable, they feel selfconfident. With an empathetic, user-centric approach, I provide comfort to the consumer. Comfort can be functional, physical or psychological. Understanding and identifying the specific areas of users’ discomfort determines if the design is a tangible or intangible solution.
 

Interesting things you did outside of school?
I regularly danced around my apartment with my roommates to take small breaks while doing homework.
 

Favorite place in L.A.?
The beach and viewpoints from hikes like Griffith Observatory.
 

What’s next?
I just finished a product design internship with a company called LOOPTWORKS, based in Portland, and am now working as a material designer at Nike.
 

Something unusual/idiosyncratic?
When I was a little girl, I would sit on the floor and cut out paper hearts using just my toes.
 

Information/tips to share with future students?
Enjoy it while it lasts! Four years sounds like a long time, but it flies by. Be an amazing student but explore and try to do, see, and eat as many new, unusual, and exciting things as possible.
