ART AND DESIGN FORUM - ARFD400
Public Science Agency (PSA) is a research lab and creative consultancy co-founded by Fei Liu and Francis Tseng. Together, they explore the possibilities of games and simulations as tools for illustrating how society uses technology, and how technology informs social behavior. In their presentation, Public Science Agency will talk about the work they do with computer simulations and expand upon the learning affordances of speculative and embodied gameplay. They will present Humans of Simulated New York, a participative & speculative economic simulation and game based on 10 years worth of New York Census data, as well as other digital and physical experiences designed in tandem with computer simulations.
