Event Description
Los Angeles-based designer and Rocket Grants juror Rosten Woo leads a roundtable discussion about design as social practice and the discourse, dialogue, and negotiations involved in working with the public sphere. Woo is best known for his civic-scale artworks and collaborations with grass-roots organizations that help people understand complex systems, re-orient themselves to places, and participate in group decision-making. Woo will provide a brief introduction to his practice then use examples from his work to launch the discussion. Participants are invited to read about Woo’s work in advance at http://rostenwoo.biz/ and bring questions and ideas as they relate to the Lawrence community. RSVP requested by Monday, May 1 to spencerart@ku.edu.
