Artful Design: Technology in Search of the Sublime!

Artful Design: Technology in Search of the Sublime!

You are cordially invited to our first Speakers Series event for the school year 2019-2020 on September 29, 2019. Professor Ge Wang will discuss the nature of design. We hope that you, your family, and your friends will join us. It is a good opportunity to meet up with old friends and make new ones.

What: Talk by Professor Ge Wang, entitled "Artful Design: Technology in Search of the Sublime!"

-What is the nature of design, and the meaning it holds in human life?

-What does it mean to design well -- to design ethically in today’s world?

-How can the shaping of technology elevate us as humans?

This presentation (with many live demos) takes the audience through a journey through the design of everyday tools, musical instruments, toys, and social experiences, while contemplating the ways in which we shape technology -- and how technology, in turn, shapes our society and ourselves.

Professor Ge Wang, a native of Beijing, is an Associate Professor at Stanford University in Music and Computer Science. He researches artful design of tools, toys, games and social experiences. Ge is the architect of the ChucK music programming language, director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra, co-founder of Smule and designer of the Ocarina and Magic Piano apps for mobile phones. He is a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow and the

author of Artful Design: Technology in Search of the Sublime (2018), a photo comic book about the ethics and aesthetics of shaping technology. (https://artful.design/)
