Picture Projects

Picture Projects Brooklyn based Picture Projects produces new media work - online documentaries and interactive installations - that primarily focus on telling complex stories from multiple perspectives.

Picture Projects is a Brooklyn based studio that collaborates with other artists, photographers, journalists, film makers, technologists and academics to tackle major contemporary and historical social concerns. Picture Projects’s work goes back to 1995, and with our team, the studio has over 70 years of experience developing our own projects and helping non-profit organizations develop and realize their visions. What differentiates Picture Projects from web design and development companies is our approach as artists, and our focus on presenting multiple perspectives and engaging with the complexities and contradictions arising from very different experiences and points of view. Websites, mobile phones and interactive installations have become keynote narrative and dialoguing platforms with the possibility to engage and enable visitors with opportunities to engage and respond to what they know. Picture Projects specializes in bringing to life all the facets of an issue on-line and in exhibition and public spaces. In our current projects, we continue to weave new technologies with smart design into an ongoing exploration of our history and social fabric through first-person stories, dynamic data and participatory storytelling.

"American higher education has a dropout problem. About one in three students who enroll in college never earn a degree. But a promising solution is staring us in the face: Schools with similar students often have very different graduation rates. This suggests that the problem isn’t the students — it’s the schools" https://nyti.ms/2whvrwa vi an interactive piece by The New York Times' David Leonhardt and Sahil Chinoy
