Special HUBweek edition of Design Museum Mornings featuring Pip Mothersill

For October we are holding a special edition of Design Museum Mornings during HUBweek! This Design Museum Mornings event will differ from our usual programming and will take place on Sunday afternoon October 15th as a part of HUBweek’s Design Day.

In today’s digitally-mediated world, designers translate ideas back and forth between the richly poetic language of the physical world and the logical parameters of Computer-Aided Design tools. As these tools develop to understand more of our intuitive human knowledge, they will have the ability to become intelligent collaborators in our creative process.  But can creativity be computational?

This talk by Pip Mothersill considers what a computer needs to be creative and how we might develop design tools that give us a more digitally-enabled creativity.
Pip Mothersill is a PhD student in the Object-based Media group at the MIT Media Lab. Using her experience as a product designer, she explores how meaning is embodied in objects by designers, and how computation or even AI can play a role in that creative process through the development of new design tools.

This presentation kicks off at 1:00 pm on the afternoon of October 15th at The HUB, City Hall Plaza, and will feature audience Q&A, refreshments, and plenty of great design discussion.

Doors open at 1:00 pm; Presentation begins at 1:30 pm.

Tickets are available through HUBweek’s registration page.
