By humans and algorithms
The interfaces that are surfacing content on our digital devices tend to be humorless, inexorably predictable and sometimes austere, and this is just one symptom of the direction that our overall digital culture is taking. In this talk we will explore how the convergence of natural and synthetic systems can push the thinking around interfaces, devices, memes, and digital culture throughout inspirational work and Pierluigi’s practice. 
 Pierluigi is a senior experience designer based in San Francisco, where he leads projects at the intersection between the natural and the technological, speculating about the future of education, human senses and automobiles.

When: Tue. Feb. 27th 2018, 17-18.

Where: CIID, Toldbodgade 37B, Ground Floor, 1253 Copenhagen K.

Real and Necessary Stories and Lies
Design is often the telling of a story and those stories are sometimes real and sometimes not. Design research, design fiction, even prototyping in design all play with the concept of what is real and what isn’t, what needs to be real to find a truth or what should be false to inspire or reveal a deeper truth or ask a more provocative question. As designers and makers of things we’re all going to need to think a little more deeply about what can and cannot, should and should not, be real and be fake.

When: Tue. Feb. 20th 2018, 17-18.

Open Lecture: Felix Heibeck

Lenses for Creative Inquiry
The role of designers is reaching far beyond its old stereotype of making things usable, pretty, and delightful. Designers have “a seat at the table” and are trusted with tasks of ever increasing complexity and reach. In this talk, Felix will present different lenses for creative inquiry that can help uncover solutions for the wicked problems of our times.
To exemplify these lenses, Felix will talk about past projects that deal with the value of carefully crafted microinteractions, the opportunities of VR in prototyping and user testing, what it might feel like to be a pedestrian in a world of autonomous cars, and how to build a smart light bulb with sustainability in mind.

When: Tue. Feb. 13th 2018, 17-18.

Where: CIID, Toldbodgade 37B, Ground Floor, 1253 Copenhagen K.

When: Wed. Jan. 31st 2018, 17-18.

Where: CIID, Toldbodgade 37B, Ground Floor, 1253 Copenhagen K.
