Please join us — in person or online — for the final event of the Adobe-sponsored Design | Technology | Theory series on Monday May 19th at 1:00PM in the ZML. As a wrap-up to the series, we will be addressing the topic “Design, Theory, Practice and the Future of Scholarship.”
What will the next generation of design scholarship look like? In many circles, the archaic stillness of traditional academic texts has given way to new forms of expression that are computational, visual, sonic, mobile or interactive. Join us for a dynamic roundtable pecha kucha-style showdown. It features five designer-scholars: Julian Bleecker, Kristy Kang, Veronica Paredes, Jen Stein, and Steve Anderson, each of whom is operating at the intersection of theory and practice in their production of artistic and scholarly works.

The Getty Museum is currently hosting “California Video,” a survey of 40 years of video art made in California. To complement this show, the IML’s Anne Bray has curated a stellar program of cutting edge videos from 1980 forward called “Hotbed: Video Cultivation Beside the Getty Gardens”; it will feature 20 videos projected outside on the walls of the Getty in a spectacular and unprecedented display this Friday, May 9 (7:00 – 9:00 p.m.). The show continues on Saturday, but this conflicts with the IMD thesis show opening, so plan accordingly!
The IML is pleased to announce a workshop May 27-30 for faculty and graduate students to create multimedia projects with Sophie, an easy-to-use free software application developed by the Institute for the Future of the Book and presented by USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. Sophie allows users to design interactive texts that incorporate images, video and sound, and it deploys creative formats for analysis, annotation and citation.
