This April in Milan, the School of Art & Design at Northern Michigan University (NMU) took the theme of Transiessence – a blend of the words transient and essence.

Peter J Pless, Professor of Human-Centered Design at NMU defines its theme: ‘The dictionary defines the word transient as not lasting, enduring, or permanent. Essence is defined as the basic, real, and invariable nature of a thing or its significant individual feature or features. Together, these values provide a range of responses that stimulate desires for function and change.’
