Ge Wang – Discussion & Book Signing at Hennessey + Ingalls

Join us Saturday, December 1st at 4:00pm for a Discussion and Book Signing with GE WANG for the new book: “Artful Design: Technology in Search of the Sublime, A MusiComic Manifesto”.

Book Description:

What we make, makes us. This is the central tenet of Artful Design, a photorealistic comic book that examines the nature, purpose, and meaning of design. A call to action and a meditation on art, authenticity, and social connection in a world disrupted by technological change, this book articulates a fundamental principle for design: that we should design not just from practical needs but from the values that underlie those needs.

Artful Design takes readers on a journey through the aesthetic dimensions of technology. Using music as a universal phenomenon that has evolved alongside technology, this book breaks down concrete case studies in computer-mediated toys, tools, games, and instruments, including the best-selling app Ocarina. Every chapter elaborates a set of general design principles and strategies that illuminate the essential relationship between aesthetics and engineering, art and design.

Ge Wang implores us to both embrace and confront technology, not purely as a means to an end, but in its potential to enrich life. Technology is never a neutral agent, but through what we do with it―through what we design with it―it provides a mirror to our human endeavors and values. Artful Design delivers an aesthetic manifesto of technology, accessible yet uncompromising.

Event date: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018 – 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Boutique Community Spotlight at the Stay Boutique Conference

BLLA is known in hospitality as the association that disrupts…basically, we like the good kind of change. This conference is meant to congregate the leaders and influencers in our community who will take the boutique sector to new heights (you thought boutique had it’s moment? You haven’t seen the power of boutique quite yet…)

THIS CONFERENCE HAS 3 PURPOSES

  1. educate the boutique community

  2. meet like-minded people 

  3. celebrate boutique

Our theme this year is: Boutique has made it, what’s next?

We will discuss everything that has to do with the boutique community: hotels, restaurants, bars, fitness studios, retail, festivals, parties and such. We believe that there is a whole new mindset that has come to life over the past few years, and that’s the boutique mindset. This includes the creative, forward-thinking and innovative people who believe in the power that “boutique” holds. BLLA is changing up the hospitality industry conference landscape drastically and will be launching the new wave of hospitality during this conference.
