November 10: Mapping Sensation + Affect

November 10: Mapping Sensation + Affect

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Today my friend Gabi Schillig and her students (graphic designers, information designers, exhibition designers, artists, architects, jewelry designers, product designers, filmmakers, etc.) from the Peter Behrens School of Arts / Düsseldorf University of Applied Science at the Faculty for Design will be visiting with us in class. And you’re all invited to join us for dinner afterward (Taboonette! — our treat!) in the Media Studies “loft” (79 5th Ave, conference room 1718 — right off the elevator lobby).
