Alyce Currier – SVA MA Design Research

Alyce Currier (they/them) is currently enrolled in Pratt Institute’s M.S. in Information Experience Design, expected to graduate in 2023. After studying sociology and media studies as an undergraduate, they spent the last decade working in the tech industry. With a critical but optimistic eye toward technology, they are particularly interested in exploring what it looks like to build strong, intentional communities and systems of support (both online and offline) outside of corporate control, and building meaningful connections in an increasingly stressful and exploitative attention economy.
