Parsons Students and University of the Arts in Berlin Exhibit Joint Show in Aronson Gallery

Written by:


Prototype: Exhibition in the Cloud is a collaboration between Parsons The New School for Design and the Universität der Künste Berlin, which seeks to challenge and reinvent the received notion of prototyping, extending its design and industrial origin to encompass artistic imagination. The show features works by students from UDK Berlin and Parsons The New School for Design in New York. Participating students come from a spectrum of disciplines including Design and Technology, Communication Design, Fine Arts, Photography, and Illustration. The project is a collaboration that takes place between two geographical locations, using the cloud as a communication channel, tool and archival form for the exhibition. New York and Berlin are both centers of global cultural production and also significant platforms for local artistic experimentation; this exhibition provides the opportunity for students from both universities to explore these urban environments and relationships. The resulting prototypes will have their digital DNA generated physically for the first time in this exhibition in New York. A second iteration will be in Berlin in January 2013.
