Love Beta: An evening with Michael Jager
Thursday, January 26, 2017 / Albany
The consciousness of chaos, the killing of curiosity...
Love, desire and other design stories.
In a world of seemingly infinite knowledge access, somehow true curiosity is being choked from our lives and processes.
Still the cumulus of our consciousness flows ever forward, a beautiful place where bold design is in permanent beta.
Can design do more?
Can designers change realities?
Can we help ourselves and others feel something?
Or are we all part of some diabolic scheme?
