Programme Associate of GenSpace 

Leticia Cartier Oxley is the Program Associate at Genspace, and community biology laboratory located in Brooklyn.  She is a recent graduate from the MA Design Studies program at Parsons School of Design with a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and Literature from Regis University. Leticia’s work situates itself at the intersection of design theory and praxis. With a focus on Speculative Design, Leticia was part of the Designed Realities Lab at Parsons, which uses design as a catalyst for interdisciplinary discourse and imagining. With an emphasis on prototypes and design fictions, her work suggests that design can be used as a method of inquiry and imagination can be a political force within society
