I’ll be down in Los Angeles next week to give a lecture at SCI-Arc on the night of Thursday, November 15. The talk is sponsored by Ed Keller’s new MediaSCAPES program, with the support of onMatter, and it should be a lot of fun.
MediaSCAPES, for those curious, describes itself as follows:
Founded and directed by Ed Keller, MediaSCAPES… blends an intensive design studio culture with theory, research and practice. A cutting edge faculty team – with critics, lecturers, workshop leaders and guests drawn from academia and professional practice worldwide – provides students with training and a vital global network in both academic and professional contexts.
It does this in a “‘thinktank R&D’ environment,” concentrating on “technology, software, media, film and game spaces, to produce new content and ideas.” The program thus prepares students for “positions in design, research and theory work across the fields of architecture, new media, landscape design, and digital cinema.”
I’ll be giving a talk called Future Conjecture Speculation and, as far as I’m aware, it’s free and open to the public; it starts at 7pm on November 15; it’s located here; and, against all better judgement, I’ll try to mention the secret burial place of Christ at least once… and I’ll almost certainly discuss the militarization of geology, some urban knot theory, a few solidified carbon dioxide cities, and an inflatable architectural cosmos or two. Maybe even the museum of assassination.
