SIGNAL/NOISE Lecture Series

logo_SN_squareWe’re proud to announce SIGNAL/NOISE, our 2014-2015 lecture series. SIGNAL/NOISE  investigates how design confronts and responds to the current hyper-abundance of information in the world. To what extent does this bombardment of information (“Noise”) carry meaningful “Signals”? When clamorous complexity abounds, what is the role of simple silence?
