    Poverty


    In response to Camboo, posted by Vivian Lam,
    in the thread Camboo

    Vivian,

    I've been invited to give feedback to all Parsons students, regarding your thesis projects.

    Thank you for imagining a way to elevate local crafts in Cambodia, on both a design and market level. Overall, I think it's great that you've considered it in the larger sociopolitical context. You've articulated the problem and your proposed solution very clearly and thoughtfully.

    As a point of inspiration, you might want to look into the work of NY-based designer Stephen Burks and his projects in the developing world; he too takes the local global.

    Best of luck with your work. I hope you make it to Cambodia and bring Camboo to life! J.
