Partner Project Info

The Parks Department came to MFA Interaction Design to help tell the story of the Freshkills Park in Staten Island to its visitors. Section Story is an interactive exhibition that will illustrate the transformation of a landfill to a park through the use of graphics, a mobile app, and video installations. The purpose of the installation is to establish an ongoing connection between people and the site's history, present, and future. To that end, the exhibition will be installed in 2015-2016 in a public transit hub and public programming around the project will include workshops and presentations.
