All Design is Experience Design

We Will Be Hosted By Rise New York

43 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10010

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.

Our TEDx Speaker Will Be Abraham Burickson

Abraham Burickson is a designer, architect, and pusher of the boundaries of participatory art. As the cofounder and Artistic Director of Odyssey Works, an interdisciplinary performance group that makes bespoke performances for one-person audiences, Abraham has spent over fifteen years designing for empathy and human transformation.
