How do artists and designers explore, reveal, and deploy 'thing
power' through their work? How do they use interactions between things
to creatively catalyze innovative design solutions and novel artistic
experiences? And can a better appreciation of 'thing power' lead to
possible scenarios for a more sustainable future? This debate will focus
on the respective experimental strategies the artist and designers on
the panel have taken to generate and cultivate sensations of responsive 'thingness' in their work.
With Cesar Harada, Jae Rhim Lee, Harry Smoak, Roman Kirschner, Christien Meindertsma, and TeZ.
