RiDE: Risk/ Dare/ Experiment
Pratt Institute, 2014
Created and coordinated by Amir Parsa

RiDE is a series of educational and cultural episodes that bring various processes related to artistic, intellectual, and design practices into a visible arena while illustrating the unforseen outcomes of experimentation—ventures that open up new paths, abandoned projects that lead to new insights, and other types of risks that inspire adventurous ideas and actions.

RiDE episodes feature invited artists, designers, writers, and creative practitioners from many different fields, as well as Pratt faculty, staff, and students across departments and disciplines. They inspire and instigate curricular innovations while bringing to light emerging practices and new disciplinary formations.

In 2014 filmmaker Lynne Sachs was invited by the Department of Film/Video to present Taking a Docu-mentary Detour, a lecture/performance with students from several Pratt divisions that was part discussion, part experiment, and part artwork.
