Negotiating the Terrain Between Maker and Designer

Business of Making

Wednesday, September 17, 3:30 pm to 3:50 pm in Viscusi Gallery

Design has been embracing the ethos and methodologies of the maker movement, and many makers have been pushing their work into the terrain of design. This talk will show a series of projects that reveal the fertile ground in the overlap, and argue how both can create unique value in how new products, artifacts, and sets of instructions enter our world.
