Guerrilla Augmented Reality
60 min session
Advancements in technology are changing how we communicate and interact with each other. Earlier this year a group of internet artists invaded the MoMa and set up an augmented reality (AR) show without permission. These artists used AR to replace cellular images of Jackson Pollock paintings with their own content. Their goal was to make a statement against elitism and exclusivity within the art world. Now that AR technology has become more accessible viewers have been given the opportunity to participate in traditionally one-sided visual conversations. In this session, we will discuss additional examples of Guerrilla Augmented Reality and potential leverage points for activism and community organizing.
Want to experiment with this technology? Sign up to be a member of our Guerrilla Augmented Reality Cohort. It's a creative workgroup that will meet once a week for three weeks beginning this month on June 29th. Sign up today!
Innovation Economies of Design
60 min session
There are a world of possibilities for design agencies in 2018. As more designers have become purpose-driven, the industry has grown in a number of ways. There are numerous innovative models for building a mindful and intentional design agency. In this session, we will discuss contemporary design studios that deviate from the traditional for-profit model. We will discuss design cooperatives, social enterprises, nonprofits, inclusive business models, and more.
