Jeffrey Kipnis & Eric Owen Moss Look You Got It All Wrong 1-clip_9523

Subclip

Jeffrey Kipnis and Eric Owen Moss discuss the importance of designers anticipating what will be technological feasible, stressing the element of wonder or surprise as a core value. To a question about whether new tools help or hinder this wonder, Moss argues it’s a question of seeing where the tools haven’t been. Kipnis suggests that new tools never quite solve the problem they were designed to address, but, rather, create a new mode of practice.

Wolf Prix What’s the Difference Number One-clip_4876

Subclip

Eric Owen Moss introduces Wolf Prix, presenting various Wolves that together make up his personality. Prix discusses his interest in architecture as society rather than surface and form. He reccomends resistance to tools and technologies that push too narrowly in one direction. He argues that virtual public spaces without a physical component are not truly public. Prix presents a series of quotes, thoughts and ideas on complexity, problem solving, and rule-breaking.


Todd Gannon

October 9, 2009 |
Introduction by:

Todd Gannon describes his interest in the phenomenon of obsession. He characterizes the unprecidented ability of contemporary youth to multitask as a new kind of hyper-attention. He attributes this to advances in technology and especially real time feedback loops. He talks about his interest in form and surface problems and the idea of translating linguistic techniques to material form. He discusses his interest in a surface that organizes itself in terms of coded form and language. Gannon presents a few of his own projects, stressing the ability to come up with creative ways of working within economic constraints. He argues that media can create transparency in ways which is seldom explored.
