The Presenters

The Third Wave speakers will address future-facing topics such as the designer's role in a data-driven world, how empathy should be re-evaluated to include diverse voices in the design process, the future of food, transportation, and more. Each presentation will lead attendees on a journey toward a better future, where designers have a responsibility to emphasize the notions of inclusion, sustainability, and cooperation within their work as we transition into a world more mindful of our own impact on the planet and the people who live here.

  • Paola Antonelli

    Senior Curator, The Museum of Modern Art in the Department of Architecture & Design

    Presentation: Broken Nature

    The XXII Triennale di Milano, Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival, highlighted the concept of restorative design, plotting its role in surveying our species’ bonds with the complex systems in the world,and in designing reparations when necessary, through objects, concepts, and new systems. Antonelli will take stock of the experience, casting the exhibition against the turbulent geopolitical background of the past year, describing which among its ambitions were met, and which were not.

  • Max Almy

    Dean of the School of Digital Media, SCAD

    Presentation: VR for Good: the Transformative Potential of Immersive Reality

    Immersive Reality has been called an empathy machine. Studies show that it takes our brains only 20 seconds to accept and believe a virtual experience. If our brains can’t tell the difference between what is real and what is synthetic reality, we’ve left the screen and entered an untethered world.

    Artists and designers are just beginning to explore the transformative power of immersive reality. There’s a rising spirit among students, artists, designers and technologists to harness this power to enable social connections, collaboration, co - creation, and more conscious living. They’re women, they’re diverse and inclusive; they’re creating wild art and working in hospice.They’re changing peoples’ lives and seeking a better world. They believe in VR for good, VR for impact, and ARVR for peace.

  • Meagan Durlak

    Design Director, IDEO.org

    Presentation: Applying UN Sustainable Development Goals to Design Practices

    As the UN states, “The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.” Whether you have heard of these development goals or not, they exist as a long-term approach for countries, industries, and individuals to address global challenges. The Sustainable Development Goals are ways of thinking about how to create a more inclusive, equitable, prosperous and sustainable future—but where do you begin with such a long-term agenda? In this panel, UN representatives and designers actively engaged in implementing these goals into their practices will illuminate what the SDGs are, how their work incorporates humane, sustainable ideals, and what all designers can gain from understanding the UN’s plan for action.

  • Jerome Harris

    Design Director, Housing Works

    Presentation: Against, But in the Spirit of, Modernism

    Champions of the Modernism movement, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, aimed to reject notions of arbitrary, dated aesthetic traditions in favor of a philosophy that responded to the technologies of the times and usher in what might become the new. Our world is now saturated with the old “new”, which is devoid of the movement’s original radical philosophy. This leaves us in a dangerously subtle hegemonic crisis of one-dimensional design thinking, making Modernism now the exact cage from which it once wished to be freed—it has been stripped of its criticality, ability to unite countries at war, as well as its problematic history. Modernism is now an empty shell of a style that promotes capital gain. Taking in the entire context of our contemporary lifestyles, a new radical and inclusive design philosophy needs to be implemented on a mass scale in an effort to bring about the new “new”, in the spirit of Modernism’s original objectives. Jerome Harris will present how to take back the original meaning of Modernism to reinvigorate it with modern day design ideals.

  • Liz Jackson

    Founder, The Disabled List

    Presentation: Future is Code for Eugenics

    Utopian ideals of a pain free future have become dystopian nightmares for disabled people. Today, we are being asked 'What future do you want?'' without considering 'Who will be included in your future?' Liz Jackson will discuss how current design briefs that seek to fix disabled people are creating a dangerous precedent for disabled futures. And she will advocate to involve disabled people in conversations around the future, so that we can design space for disabled people in our future.

  • François Nguyen

    Creative Director, frog

    Presentation: The Cost of Comfort

    So much of our design careers revolve around designing more convenient, friction-free experiences, but could this effort actually be making our lives worse? Human-centered design often forgets that humans need challenges, pressure and stress to grow and thrive in this world. Gravity constantly puts a strain our body and keeps muscles and bones strong. Puzzles and mental challenges keep our minds sharp. Our digestive systems require a regular diet of resistive fiber to maintain good health. In this talk Francois Nguyen discusses the value of stress and the diminishing returns of focusing only on eliminating “pain points’ from an experience.

  • Yasaman Sheri

    Designer & Director

    Presentation: Code Switch

    Objects have always been part of systems that are larger than what our senses can immediately perceive and our minds comprehend. Networks of sensors, ecologies of waste, advancements in biotechnology, laws and policies, rising awareness of global warming, are a few topics that affect our daily lifestyles and in turn the way we design for our objects and systems. Still, the training, tools and opportunities for designers are lacking to exercise working in such spaces in depth and at a multitude of scales. What new skills and tools might we need to evolve in order to design in the complex and networked systems of today?
