Lecture at Interactive Institute

Swedish Interactive Institute
Kista, Sweden

The dynamic team at Interactive Institute invited me to discuss my artwork, The Labyrinth, which was a social intervention on the topic of violence, conducted in collaboration with the social justice organization Design Studio for Social Intervention in Boston. For that research-intensive project, I used the tools and processes of design research to create a provocative performance event on the grounds of a high school that has had significant exposure to violence. In the lecture and following discussion we explored how art can leverage the human-centered design approach to address complex problems in the public sphere.

Interactive Institute Swedish ICT is an experimental IT and design research institute that conducts world-class applied research and innovation, and is dedicated to the creation of ground-breaking user experiences.
