Research seminar: Design and the invisible: material conceits as design activism

Design and the invisible: material conceits as design activism: Luis Hernan, ArchaID, Newcastle University
Thursday 19th October 4pm T-Room, 1st Floor Evolution House
All welcome
The invisible is a constant source of fascination. For centuries, the unseen was considered to have mystical qualities, constituting a force larger than human, capable of shaping destiny — one would go to the oracle in the hope that they would connect to the invisible, and tell us what it fared for our future.

After Money: symposium and workshops

This one-day symposium, organised by the Centre for Design Informatics and hosted by New Media Scotland at the Alt-w LAB, aims to better understand the implications that FinTech, Cryptocurrency and Smart Contract developments are having on how industry, publics and governments understand money. The fast pace and shifting developments of cryptocurrencies and their underlying technologies have raised significant questions not only about new forms of currency but the economic, social and political constructs that surround them.
