Free Public â€œDesign Speaker Seriesâ€? Also Featured Karim Rashid, Rafael Fajardo & Rusty Smith
Imaginary Forces Director of Experience Design Tali Krakowsky will be presenting at the Ontario College of Art & Design as part of its annual â€œFaculty of Design Speaker Series,â€? taking place at the OCAD Auditorium (100 McCaul Street, Toronto) on Wednesday, February 27th at 6:30 p.m. The event is free to the public. Previous speakers include Karim Rashid, Rafael Fajardo & Rusty Smith.
Using inspirations from projects across the world and work from Imaginary Forces, Krakowsky will discuss current trends in the fusion of design, technology and architecture. Transformations in design thinking, inspired by emerging technologies and a fascination with storytelling, are changing the entertainment, educational, corporate and retail environments of the 21st Century. In her session, Krakowsky will break down interactive environments into their components: re-imagining content in motion, re-imagining media delivery systems, and re-imagining smart, interactive spaces. Tracing a quick historical evolution of interactivity in architecture, this session will examine several key projects in terms of design methodology in an attempt to suggest some goals and processes for the field of Experience Design.
