topic: Rethinking Craft: Situated Computations + Repairing Design

 

  • Monday, 19th of July 2021
  • 5:30 – 7:30 pm
  • Speaker: Vernelle A. A. Noel

In her lecture Vernelle A. A. Noel will talk about dissappearing craft practices, knowledges, and communities. These practices carry with them histories and cultures of people, knowledges, and social ties to communities. Some reasons for their disappearance include dying practitioners, lacking pedagogy, changing practices, and technocentric developments. How might we employ computation in the restoration, remediation, and reconfiguration of these practices, knowledges, and communities? Additionally, how might knowledges and innovations in these crafts, repair problems and improve research, practice and pedagogy in computational design?
