Lars Müller: 2014: Avant-Garde is Analog

Friday, January 31, 7pm
W.M. Keck Lecture Hall

A pre-lecture book signing reception for L.A. [Ten]: Interviews on Los Angeles Architecture 1970s-1990s will be hosted from 6-7pm in the SCI-Arc Library

The digital hype is over. New media and digital tools are integrated into our work and lives. Are we still excited? Do we feel something is missing? Perhaps the experience of reality? By means of real-time processes and physical objects—like buildings and books—the lecture explores sensations of the ordinary and qualities of the familiar to promote a spectacular third way into the medial future: digital AND analog.
