Participate Pilsen! Rod Northcutt (Miami Assistant Professor of Sculpture) and I travelled to the Czech Republic in July to lead a Participatory Art and Design Workshop at The University of West Bohemia. Our students came from Slovakia, Syria, Mexico, Spain, Denmark and the Czech Republic. Over the course of a week, we asked them, working in groups, to produce event-driven work that invited the participation of Pilsen citizens.
To guide the students in this project, we introduced various formal strategies: modular systems including labor structures, template-oriented work, etc and helped them forage for appropriate materials. Simultaneously, we delved into contemporary life in Pilsen, asking students to identity vital issues that the projects could address. The majority of the students were new to the fields of art and design and eager to flex their participatory muscles.
Reach out if you are interested in workshops/lectures that focus on accessibility and design or machine learning and design.
Digital Design Theory Now Available
This book begins in the 1960s, a period in which code began to pervade the design world. Essential works not only by designers, but also programmers, present the two threads of discourse—design and computation—that have rapidly merged into the increasingly interactive field of contemporary graphic design.
