Sep '04 - Aug '08
Last night I was in Providence, RI working in the Graduate Graphic Design studio down there with a friend who is doing the identity for the Space Rocks! event. It was nice to be back at RISD for a bit, but it always sucks to be up all night. So here's the question, what do you call it when you've spent all night awake? I call it being a "zombie." One of my classmates calls it "wasteoid." What are the sleep deprived walking un-dead called at your school?
As promised, here's a bit more information about Space Rocks!. Here's a snip from the statement on our website:
We're interested in how people communicate ideas about space. As spatial ideas seep more and more into popular culture, this event is a way to think about the construction and representation of spaces in both 2 and 3 dimensions. SPACE ROCKS! is an event- we'd hate to condem it to the status of a symposium- that will attempt to illuminate the productive overlaps between architecture and related art and design disciplines.
The event format will be a series of individual presentations followed by two round table discussions. We're excited to be welcoming some awesomely talented people. Check the list of speakers for links to their work if you're not familiar with it already.
Finally, this event will be free and open to the public! If you're in town for the Harvard Open House, stay for the symposium. We're also close enough to NYC that you can pop up for the day. Of course, all you Harvard and MIT people have no excuse to skip this event!
