AfterTaste 2015: Inside Imagination (Day 1)

February 27, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Parsons School of Constructed Environments is pleased to sponsor: AfterTaste 2015: Inside Imagination.

What does it take to imagine? We live in an era of environmental crisis and political unrest when complex systems and data analysis dictate projections of an uncertain future. Interiorists study existing places and are charged to imagine new worlds. In AfterTaste 2015 the Parsons School of Constructed Environments draws inspiration from artists, educators, writers, and scientists who work to transcend what we know, to catapult culture into areas inspired and new. 

Designers and thinkers who cultivate the imagination conjure futures, thinking beyond problem solving to that which has not existed before. What is the spark that creates new possibilities? How can we promote and develop imaginations that can envision and create interiors for an unknown future, rather than being beholden to the past?  How can we cultivate the unknown in a culture increasingly defined by big data and digital devices of distraction?

On February 27 and 28, 2015, imagination alchemists, designers and experts gather to think and enact new possibilities and alternative paths through the interior of the imagination.

Participants include:
Kyna Leski, Professor, Department of Architecture RISD
John Warner, PhD, Co-Founder of Green Chemistry
Gary Graham, Designer of Fashion
Linnea Tillet, Designer of Light
Jean Taylor, Actress, Teaching Artist

Cost: Free; No tickets or reservations required.
