Beginning as a catalog and evolving into a dynamic digital experience fueled by user-generated content, RISD Feed presented an unfiltered lens into the MFA graduates uncovering objects of curiosity, literature, sketches, and an inside glimpse into their studios that shed light on the artistic process that so often goes unseen by art’s traditional viewers.
Great artists attract great artists. Feed Forward Feedback investigated the collective, raw inquiry of the RISD MFA graduates to do just that.
Released during the Thesis Exhibition, the RISD Feed Forward Feedback publication gave the audience reminiscence of the artist's practice without presumption.
Empowered MFA students to upload content directly into exhibition and departmental websites, giving the graduate student body direct control over how their art and process was shared.

Found objects, quotes, images of studios, dogeared literature, and dialogue between the Dean of Graduate Studies and the graduate body, the Feed Forward Feedback became an expression of the RISD MFA.
Featured silkscreened announcements of the forthcoming catalog release directly on the flat press sheets.
Consisted of 12 films highlighting graduates in conversation with the Dean of Graduate Studies to explore what drove their work.
