With AUTOMATA, we are interested in understanding how embedded technology and automation change our perception of and experience in the built environment. We also wonder how robotics and advanced materials and construction methods are being utilized by designers.
Our lecturers includes artists and designers who employ automation in their work as well as those whose design ideas take advantage of ambient technologies.
AUTOMATA will run from January to April 2018. All lectures will follow the past pattern: Mondays in Anchorage, Tuesdays in Fairbanks, and Wednesdays in Juneau.
New this season: Anchorage lectures will be held at Williwaw Social.
