The Parsons Design and Technology Spring Fair is an open event for students, faculty and the public to converge, collaborate and create new ideas and discussions around the fields of art, design, media and technology. Positioned as a work in progress, the show features a variety of work ranging from hacked kinect games to performance art as well as traditional illustrations and prototyped products.
Instead of doing a traditional exhibition, the show is guerilla-style – the date, time and venue is set up for people to come together and show their work and converge to form a flash mob of art, design and technology. We are also trying to move away from the white cube gallery, no maps
or curation or plaques are provided, the audience is expected to take responsibility for their viewing by exploring the space and participate by talking to the artists as well as fellow visitors to the show.
We hope this energy between the audience, visitors and artists will foster an atmosphere where art and technology can connect and collaborate, causing new ideas and practices to emerge.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
