This show harnesses the diversity of our backgrounds and engages media in different modes of circulation, with a varying range of intention, purpose, scale, and audience.

All design is essentially an act of circulation, a cyclical practice of knowledge distribution — we read, experience, and interpret. Circulation determines the way an idea is shared, how a message goes out into the world, and how others receive, respond to, and interact with it. Information is transferred from the public, to the designer, and back to the public.

Re-Circulation was designed collectively by the RISD MFA class of 2019: Amy Auman, Chistopher Cote, Joel Kern, Eury Kim, Jieun Kim, Elaine Lopez, Robert McConnell, Mohammed Nassem, Annaka Olsen, Goeun Park, Marcus Peabody, Angela Torchio, Wei-Hao WangJune Yoon, and Nathan Young
