18 Mar I’ll be at TransTalks this week
I will be speaking on behalf of my artistic practice and Tiltfactor with Christopher Robbins, of the Ghana Think Tank, at TransTalks: Practice Makes Practice, a series of conversations among invited speakers, the MFA students in the Parsons Transdisciplinary Design program, and the public dedicated to exploring design’s capacity to investigate, disassemble and reframe the political, economic and social forces that define our everyday practices.
The goal for Flanagan is to allow the conversation to follow a similar path to the design process: How do each of these artist/designers decide upon their design question? What methodologies are developed that shape that question? What outcomes could be considered successful? And importantly, in the form of a post-mortem across several projects as a reflective form of practice, How does failure play into particular experimental design endeavors?
Join us Tuesday March 20 at Parsons: 6:30 pm. I believe the chat will be held on the 12th floor of 6 East 16th Street.
