On view May 7th – 23rd
Today’s designer faces two fundamental challenges: the expanding influence of design within society, and the growing role of technology within design. The MFA in Design and Technology program explores the social and cultural dimensions of technological change. These thesis projects exemplify mechanisms for developing strategies, knowledge organization, business structures, and social consciousness. To complement this exhibition, degree candidates will conduct a series of panel discussions and presentations covering topics such as dynamic narratives, learning systems, public interventions, and more. Screenings on Saturday, May 14th at 8pm and Sunday, May 15th at 6pm in Kellen Auditorium showcase the cinematic work emerging from this year’s thesis candidates. Additional installations are on view on the 7th floor of the adjoining 66 Fifth Ave entrance in rooms N716, N720, N818 and N822.
