Barb Compagnoni is an east coast surfer, game designer and creative technologist.

Created in 2014 by Niki Kriese of AMT, the annual staff lecture series showcases the creative practices of Parsons staff members.This year’s series features artists who work with transformation, communication, storytelling, alchemy. There is a constant shifting of subject, object, author, audience, and the goal is to complicate before they clarify. Using film, text, painting, and science, the artists approach their topics from different directions but share that same need to tell stories and describe experiences.
