The Design and Technology programs at Parsons are excited to announce Cloud Salon, a new online webinar that invites artists, designers, technologists, and industry professionals to present projects and engage in direct conversations with participants. These talks will be hosted over Zoom every Friday from 3~4pm (Eastern Time) from April 3 through May 8. Every event is moderated by a faculty member at Parsons Design + Technology.
Alexander Chen is a Creative Director at Google Creative Lab. In 2011, he launched MTA.ME, which transformed a New York subway map into a string instrument. This personal work led to the conception of the Les Paul Doodle, a Google doodle with generated 5.1 years worth of shared music around the world. He continued with a visualization of the Bach Cello Suites based on string physics, and a visualization of Steve Reich's Piano Phase. His personal projects have been featured by The New York Times, Wired, Fast Company, Wall Street Journal, and others. At Google, he has helped lead projects such as Chrome Music Lab (for exploring how music works) and A.I. Experiments (for exploring machine learning).
Alex will present and discuss his current and recent work, followed by a conversation with attendees moderated by Richard The, Assistant Professor in Design and Technology at Parsons.
