The Visible Futures Lab (VFL) exists to further the theory and practice of interaction and product design through structured explorations of emerging technologies, systems, and behaviors in identified areas of research interest. The Lab itself is a joint making space between the Interaction Design and Products of Design departments, but importantly, is a larger College effort. Work done in the Lab contribute to a lasting spirit of purposeful and extendable projects. The VFL gives students and guests the tools to make the invisible visible.

We’re thrilled that students and faculty had the opportunity to work alongside James Bridle during this first residency. Many thanks to James!

The Visible Futures Lab Artist In Residence Program is an opportunity for designers and artists to research and develop projects that explore and expand the philosophy of the VFL. Residences will receive a supplemental income and have access to the facilities and resources of the VFL. In return, residents will host weekly workshops and presentations to expose SVA students to their skill sets and areas research. Each residency will culminate with a final presentation and galley show. Residents do not need to be SVA students or faculty to apply.
