Parsons China Summer Trip!

Written by:


All AMT students pay attention!

PANORAMA is a work/travel AMT Collaboration Studio taking place spring semester 2016 (and beyond), in NYC and six Chinese cities (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Beijing, Chongqing, and hopefully Lhasa, Tibet). Participants will meet during the spring semester once every two weeks, and then travel to China between May 18th and June 8th. Students can enroll for between 1 and 3 credits. You must be enrolled in the PANORAMA studio to join the China trip. There are no prerequisites for this studio. Students of any age may join. This is an ideal studio for any AMT student. Come participate and represent, and experience the trip past participants have described as “the single coolest thing I did at Parsons”.

The panorama is an eternal topic of art, and we all identify with the theme. The idea of “panorama” can be interpreted from literal, spiritual, or cultural perspectives. This studio will augment traditional methods of creating panoramas (photographic, painterly, written) with state-of-the-art photo, video, or computational technology. Students will pursue their own individual projects, and will also work in groups: 2 or 3 students from NY will be combined with 2 or 3 from China to create “panoramas across a distance”. Such group projects might range from traditional image exchange or “exquisite corpse” experiments to projects taking advantage of cutting edge network capabilities, interactive work, or even dynamic creative coding and/or physical computing; focus will depend on student interest and skills. During the China trip there will be workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions, and massive exploration of sixChinese cities.

An information session about PANORAMA: Parsons in China, 2016 will take place: 

Weds Dec 9th (next week) at 6:45pm, in UC L104 (lower level UC).
