Pratt student organized Animal Crossing commencement

For most of us, 2020 is definitely an unusual year. The social distance helped us rediscovered how much we need one and another, and how much we are longing to hug in the spring. All of the challenges that we face are already known without further mentioning. Yet I want to bring you guys to this particular group of mine, the graduates of 2020.
Due to virtual learning, college ended without any true feelings. As a freshly graduated international college student, I see a lot of my friends leaving the states and giving up their opportunities to practice what they learned at school. At the same time, my friends who stay in America face tremendous difficulty to find jobs and support themselves. The work of 2020 graduates needs to be seen, and we need to celebrate and present our accomplishments!

While having to be apart from each other physically, we had actualized a lot of alternatives to keep people still together. Students and staff worked together to recreate the campus for commencement through games like Mine Craft and Animal Crossing. Many art schools also had created space online to showcase student work. Graduate showrooms are translated into virtual reality space by the photography department of SVA. Pratt’s communication design department had translated the showroom into a digital catalog. Here I had collected more links to online graduate shows. Let’s give the fresh talents another round of applause!
