Crash Report

December 12 — 18, 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.

A safe and respectful community is everyone's responsibility. We encourage you to make friends and look out for each other. If you see someone who might be in trouble or in need of assistance, don't hesitate to ask them if they need support or let Babycastles staff or volunteers know.

Individuals who have engaged in oppressive behaviors outside of Babycastles will be held accountable within it. Those with a history of being called out for sexual assault, abuse or other oppressive behaviors may not be permitted entry into the space.
Any member of the Babycastles staff/organization may ask you to leave at any time if your behavior makes others uncomfortable. Additionally, Babycastles is not above its own policies -- all members of Babycastles are expected to adhere to all of the above.
