May 2012
13:00 to 15:00
location: POST, Coolsingel 42, Rotterdam

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.
