Lecture Series, Gagarin: To Understand through Experience, Thursday, November 21 at 8 p.m.
Nils Wiberg works as interaction designer at Gagarin, a company that is known for their highly interactive exhibitions. In the Iceland Design Centre Lecture Series, Wiberg will speak about the different ways in which one can translate knowledge to design and how it is being done in Gagarin.
New possibilities – and new complexities – arise in the verge between art, design, science and technology. How to strike a balance between these complexities? How to cope with the fears, anxieties and problems with new, decidedly natively digital technologies and new aesthetic? How can these translated to action by a critical designer?
Nils Wiberg will also discuss concepts such as Bio-power, Interpassivity, parafunctionality, proprioception and the intellectual legacy of the UNA-bomber in discussion with the audience.
Gagarin creates highly interactive media solutions that allow people to experience stories vividly, understand content and share discoveries with others.
Gagarin’s projects include a multitude of media, interfaces, devices and technologies, with previous clients and projects including Wild Reindeer Exhibition in Norwegian Sea Bird Centre, Reykjavik 871+/-2 Museum, Frankfurt Book Fair, CCP and Laxness Museum.
The Lecture takes place at Reykjavik Art Museum Hafnarhús on Thursday, November 21 at 8 p.m. and will be held in English.
