DOT DOT DOT: "The Urbanists"
The MFA Interaction Design Lecture Series

Join us for our January lecture, featuring four speakers giving four
talks in forty minutes. This month’s topic:

“The Urbanists”
New forms of public space are emerging. Through an exploration of new
definitions of urban environments, our four lecturers will examine the
time when public space is more personal, ubiquitous computing is
allowing cities to have an impact on users’ experiences, and the
design of services can truly be vibrant and meaningful. As inhabitants
of a city, these things are often invisible in the way we craft
experiences. Learn from four practitioners how to be more aware and
discerning of their presence around us.

Speakers

* Adam Greenfield, head of design direction at Nokia and author of
the forthcoming The City Is Here For You To Use
* Soo-in Yang, Founder and principal of The Living, adjunct
assistant professor at Columbia University, Graduate School of
Architecture
* Rachel Abrams, Creative Director, Turnstone Consulting LLC, and
forthcoming faculty member, MFA Interaction Design
* Phil Kline, Composer and Public Sound Artist

About the Lecture Series
The “Dot Dot Dot” Lecture Series is meant for broad explorations of
interaction design, business, and aesthetic inspiration. Practitioners
and thought leaders give short talks in an informal setting. Wisdom
will be revealed and methods will be shared in a environment intended
to satisfy both social and scholarly pursuits.

About MFA in Interaction Design
The MFA in Interaction Design program trains students to research,
analyze, prototype, and design concepts in their business, social, and
cultural contexts. Today, business success depends on the presence of
a well-designed, engaging experience, and the new MFA in Interaction
Design program explores the strategic role of interaction design in
shaping everyday life.
