Crash Report: Parsons DT x Babycastles

December 12th – December 18th, 2016

Crash Report showcases works of videogame art and experimental interfaces created by emerging artists and designers from Game Design Systems and The New Arcade in Parsons’ Design and Technology program. Harnessing the classic arcade aesthetic, Game Design Systems embraces the dichotomy of hope and fear in the modern age. The New Arcade draws from folk games, platform studies, and critical design as it explores the role of bespoke interfaces in mediating interactive experiences, and proposes an alternate history of the arcade: one focused on unique, expressive, and social interactions.
