We are going to the moon again, and this time, to stay. But how should we do it this time and do it right?
Join us to learn about the Space Exploration Initiative (SEI) through three workshop events.
SEI focuses on the lived experiences of humans in space, hoping to move past the survivalist nature of space exploration and find ways people for people to delight in inhabiting outer space. SEI’s mission is threefold: to democratize action in space, to revolutionize the future of space, and to realize space exploration. It strives towards these goals through research explorations in design for the body in space, space sensing and robotics, space food and sensory experiences, deep space exploration, space & the arts, and space health.
2. A new moon landing. – We are going to the moon again, and this time, to stay. But how should we do it this time and do it right?
Register in advance for this meeting:
For the first time since the 1960s, humanity is preparing to return humans to the surface of the Moon. The first Moon landing was a critical cultural touchpoint; people around the world tuned in to watch the feat, and the event had a lasting effect on a new generation. The 60s and 70s became shaped by the new space age: everything from television, to film, and design was influenced by the futuristic aesthetic of the space age. As we gear up for space exploration in the 2020s, what will the design aesthetic of this new space age be? How will we reimagine and rethink our lives and surroundings here on Earth?
What to expect:
-Explore the influence of space travel on design, and workshop the potential that the new space age may have on life on Earth.
What to bring:
-Come to the workshop ready to collaboratively sketch and prototype with us, as we workshop about the next generation of design.
