All Design is Experience Design
Location To Be Determined
Date To Be Determined
For the past fifteen years, artist and architect Abraham Burickson has been working with artists of all kinds to create day-long, week-long, even month-long performances for one person audiences. To create the experiences, which are transformative and overtake all aspects of the audience's life, Burickson and his collaborators begin with a fundamental provocation: all art and design–from architecture to graphics, playwriting to novel writing, painting to performance art–is experience design. What results is a radically different approach to creativity that forces audiences and artists into a deep, relational, and ultimately transformative embrace.
This TEDxGramercy Salon will feature a screened TED Talk, one live speaker, and copious amounts of audience engagement.
