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
