"Maps, Tape, Video, Paper: Design as Performance & Performance as Discourse" Different Data presentation at VCUarts!

The Different Data Group had the opportunity to visit VCUarts hosted by the Department of Graphic Design (shout out David Shields) in remarkably fabulous Richmond VA. On Thursday April 7 gave the lecture "Maps, Tape, Video, Paper: Design as Performance & Performance as Discourse", at the beautiful VCUarts Depot where we discussed examples of our projects in Detroit and Stockholm and elaborated on our interests, including, but not limited to: counter-design methodologies; data as narrative; narrative as method; method as design; design as performance; performance as discourse; collaboration’s  joys, pitfalls and pratfalls; the pratfalls associated with the word critical; criticality as a counter-design methodology.

The next day we visited the senior Gdes class co-taught by Nicole Killian and Lauren Thorson and gave some questionable advice to the students frantically working to finish their senior projects.

Great program and great people. We are very glad to have had the opportunity.

Hey, that's a lot of people.

Presentation, T minus 10 and counting …

Love the poster!

The poster! Thanks VCUarts Gdes!
