Open is a practice. It encourages collaboration; it suggests a community. Open is a methodology. It is a way of making; it allows transparency. Open is a platform and a framework. It allows for imagination and stories.

OPEN IXD is the MFA Interaction Design Festival at the School of Visual Arts. It’s a collaborative celebration of the work from 14 interaction design students who present their theses in individual expression. Inside the theater, the class of 2014 presents their experience through story; outside, prototypes are in the open for play and exploration. Join the Class of 2014 in their presentations.
