Matters of Design in Making for the Masses

Tuesday, Oct. 17
Noon-1 p.m.
Arts & Design Research Incubator, 16 Borland Building, University Park

A faculty panel will review the ongoing development of an undergraduate course bringing together art, architecture, and engineering faculty to design and co-teach a course that deals with creativity, design, and making, titled “Making for the Masses.”

Panelists will focus on aspects of design from across disciplines and in the larger work of making, especially as it relates to the democratization of design.

Registration is not required, but individuals can indicate their interest in attending on the ADRI Facebook page.

A Post-Digital Future: Definitions, Implications, and Questions

Tuesday, Oct. 24
Noon-1 p.m.
Arts & Design Research Incubator, 16 Borland Building, University Park

Ann Clements, associate professor of music education and TLT’s first Fellow in Residence, will discuss some of the ideas she developed during her fellowship.

The term “post-digital” has been used by various disciplines to draw attention to the changing relationship between digital technology and human social and artistic practices. This presentation explores multiple definitions and uses of the term “post-digital” in several disciplines, including music, arts and design, architecture, business, marketing, media and film studies, and education, and argues that its use reflects a paradigm shift and a new era in these fields. This shift has specific implications for the future practice of arts creation and education including the impact of digital cleanliness and ease of production, the growing hybridity of digital and traditional art making, and the influence of digital technology on human artistic practice.

Registration is not required, but individuals can indicate their interest in attending on the ADRI Facebook page.
