JUSTIN BLINDER / School of Art, Media, and Technology [BFA Design and Technology ’12]

Did your experiences in the Design and Technology program change how you think about the tools artists use?

When I first transferred into the Design and Technology department at Parsons, I got an intense introduction to creative tools and software, and to critical discussions about technology. With this foundation, I began developing projects that question the role of technology in our lives: I explored my interests in emotional and therapeutic interfaces by creating a breathing plush toy I call Snoozy the Sloth; his embedded respiratory system comforts users. At Parsons I realized that innovation happens when creative people build compelling alternatives to the things we live with.
