Congratulations to Parsons’ MFADT students who were part of three out of nine Cohort teams awarded for the NYC Media Lab Combine grants. Parsons was the only design school represented in the winners.
The NYC Media Lab Combine: Program for High Potential Media Startups from NYC Universities is a new program to commercialize emerging media technologies from faculty and students at the city’s universities. The program is supported with generous funding from the New York City Economic Development Corporation, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, and through the support of NYC Media Lab’s corporate membership.
Winners included: Gabor Tankovics, Yuchen Zhang, and Namreta Kumar for their concept “Dartboard”, Joanna Chin, Bryan Collinsworth, Shakti Mb, and Jaskirat Randhawa’s “Post from the Past”, and Hang Do Thi Duc and Regina Flores Mir’s “Data Selfie”.
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.
