Exploring the power dynamic between authority and those that are subject to it, we intervene through the futuring of four objects that disobey conventional paradigms of light, computing, gravity and sound.

Leap Web

This project revolves around using drone technology to connect secluded and dispersed populations in need of assistance. Our concept focuses on leapfrogging technology and infrastructure that requires constant investment and maintenance. Our core belief is that drones can be used comprehensively in conjunction with future interfaces to decentralize support systems.

Thesis work from the BFA Communication Design program
Projection and book display

We are proud to present here the work of our BFA Communication Design students. Located within a progressive university and in New York City, these BFA programs are the most internationally diverse, technologically inclined, socially minded, future-focused, and interdisciplinary programs of their kind. Our students are not just designers: many are also photographers, artists, illustrators, programmers, social scientists, and writers, and their engagement with students and faculty outside of their chosen field is encouraged and visible in their work.

The work begins with a question, problem, or dilemma, and responds with design. Over the course of their time at Parsons, students practice research, ideation, prototyping, iteration, and presentation in the service of ideas that matter to them. A successful project does not only show a capable designer, but also someone who has the curiosity to learn independently about a subject outside ofdesign, as well as the tenacity to learn whatever it takes to convey a message or solve a problem.

For those who continue to see making as a way to learn rather than just a means to an end, design can be a lifelong framework to see the world and their place in it. Our strongest hope is that students will take with them curiosity, tenacity, and learning as a habit. This work is the first proof that they can.
