So I had the pleasure of having a table at MoCCA along with other Parsons students including Katie Turner, Beryl Chung, Lulu Wolf and Christine Young. Check out their stuff! I felt like I was in a microwave the entire time, the humidity of everyone's body sweat evaporating and condensing was absolutely delicious! I say that sarcastically. On the real though, MoCCA was an awesome experience, being in a room with upcoming artists and surrounded by printed matter! Afterall print is slowly slowly dying. I specifically enjoyed the Norwegian, Swedish and German/Berlin tables, offering some great perspective on their visual language. Just sitting at the table and watching the different unique people pass by was an experience of its own. I started sketching down all the interesting people I saw towards the end of my stay.
