What Does Data Want? Can We Think Without Categories? Can Computer Vision Help Us Understand Art? By Lev Manovich, Moderated by Katrina Sluis

22. June 2020

In the last fifteen years, many researchers started to apply AI and data science methods to the analysis of large cultural datasets. This research generated many interesting results, leading to hundreds of thousands of conference papers and journal articles, and development of new research areas and paradigms (a big part of digital humanities, cultural analytics, culturomics, etc.) But is it possible that we remain blind to the fundamental differences between cultural data and other kinds of data? Why do we approach cultural and social data today using ideas developed in the 18th and 19th century, before digital computers and big data? How do aesthetic experiences made possible by millions of Instagram images by non-professional creators challenge Computer Vision? These are the questions that I will address in my talk. My presentation draws on my 2017 book Instagram and Contemporary Image and 2020 Cultural Analytics (forthcoming in October), and the work in Cultural Analytics Lab since 2007.
 
Lev Manovich is one of the leading theorists of digital culture worldwide, and a pioneer in the application of data science for analysis of contemporary culture. Manovich is the author and editor of 13 books including AI Aesthetics, Theories of Software Culture, Instagram and Contemporary Image, Software Takes Command, Soft Cinema: Navigating the Database and The Language of New Media which was described as “the most suggestive and broad-ranging media history since Marshall McLuhan.” He was included in the list of “25 People Shaping the Future of Design” in 2013 and the list of “50 Most Interesting People Building the Future” in 2014. Manovich is a Presidential Professor at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and a Director of the Cultural Analytics Lab that pioneered analysis of visual culture using computational methods. 
This Talk is presented by the research group Visual Narrative and organized by Katrina Sluis and Wolfgang Brückle, head of the research project Postphotography.

Design im Wandel: Welche neuen Berufsbilder entstehen im Design und wie können Praktizierende von Designforschung profitieren?

22. Juni 2020

Das Feld und die Disziplin des Design haben sich in den letzten Jahren drastisch und rapide verändert. Was bedeutet das für Praktizierende und Professionals heute? Welchen Beitrag kann Designforschung leisten und wie gestaltet sich hier die Zusammenarbeit zwischen der Hochschule – Luzern Design & Kunst und der Swiss Design Association, dem Schweizer Berufsverband für das Design seit 1966.

Wir sind dazu im Gespräch mit deren Präsidenten Dominic Sturm und Vize-Präsidentin Meret Ernst. Geplant sind 30 Minuten im informativen und interaktiven Austausch. Die Gelegenheit, mehr über die Arbeit des Competence Centres Design & Management und der Swiss Design Association zu erfahren! Moderation Dr. Sabine Junginger, Leiterin CC Design & Management Hochschule Luzern – Design & Kunst.

Live interview on the topic Design Research in Turkey and Beyond

The term ‘design research’ has first appeared in Turkey around late 60s and 70s with the scientification of design disciplines such as architecture. Later in the 80s, the term started to spread to other design disciplines e.g. urban design, interior design. And in the mid 90s, the term ‘industrial design research’ entered into the Turkish design academia with major national conferences. Since then, the field has made great progress in Turkey, thanks to many national design educators, researchers and professionals.

In this live interview, Dr. Aysun Aytac, Competence Centre Design & Management Lucerne School of Art and Design, will talk with Prof. Dr. Özlem Er to learn about the current state and the future challenges of design research in Turkey, its existing and potential contributions to the shared body of knowledge in design theory and practice globally.

The talk will allow students, researchers and practitioners unique insights into the developments of design in Turkey. Özlem Er  is currently full professor at the Department of Industrial Design, Istanbul Bilgi University, Turkey. She initiated design management teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels in Turkey and supervised numerous master’s and PhD studies exploring different aspects of design and business as well as other issues in the field of design. As the head of the Industrial Designers’ Society of Turkey Istanbul Branch, she took part in the organization of two editions of Design Turkey Industrial Design Awards, 2012 and 2014. She directed a government funded project in 2012 with the aim of matching newly graduated industrial designers with SMEs, a project shortly titled as Design for SMEs. Özlem Er is a member of the Executive Committee of the European Academy of Design, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and also an editorial board member of The Design Journal. She has numerous publications both nationally and internationally.

Secret knowledge - visualizing complexity. An interactive keynote by Data Artist Kirell Benzi

23 June 2020

What is the essence of data? Is data just another material? Does it carry emotions? Does it try to tell us something? Can data visualization help us better understand society? Can it help to reveal the unknown and – perhaps even more importantly – to make complexity and diversity visible?

These are but a few of the many questions the new Bachelor’s programme in Data Design and Art is seeking to answer. In this talk, Data Artist Dr. Kirell Benzi will show how Big Data and algorithms can be visually articulated and how they can inspire curiosity, provide insights and evoke emotions. He very much understands his work to be a visual interpreter between complex scientific phenomena and the human being. In his interactive presentation, during which the audience selects the order of the featured artworks by voting, Kirell will elaborate on the process and the scientific principles behind his work.

Kirell Benzi is a Data Artist, keynote speaker and lecturer. He holds a Ph.D. in Data Science, teaches Data Visualization at various universities. He will be a contributor in the upcoming Bachelor’s programme in Data Design and Art at the Lucerne School of Art and Design.

The presentation will be commented on by a panel of experts consisting of Marina Bräm, former Design Director at Tamedia – paid Media, Alain Leclerc von Bonin, co-founder of Visual Context Digital, Darjan Hil and Nicole Lachenmeier, founder of superdot, and introduced by Isabelle Bentz, Head of the Bachelor Data Design & Art at the Lucerne School of Design and Art.

Design Education. Moving the conversation to the schools

25 June 2020

In November 2018, Guillermina Noël started a conversation with Ken Friedman, Donald Norman and Jorge Frascara that resulted in the idea of a She Ji special issue on Design Education. Their goal was to provide actionable information to help people implement positive change in design education.

The issue presents reflections from leaders and educators in the field: their decisions, practices, perspectives, lessons learned and recommendations for action. This issue demonstrates that design education is full of potential. We now would like to move the conversation from the paper to the school.

Discussion Part I – 18:05 to 18:25 
Michael W. Meyer and Donald Norman discuss their article with two Deans: Gabriela Christen, Dean Lucerne School of Art and Design, and Celeste Martin, Dean Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver, Canada.
 
Discussion Part II – 18:30 to 18.50
Pieter Jan Stappers and Ena Voûte from Delft University of Technology discusses their article with two Professors: Carla Spinillo, National University of Parana, Brazil, and Praveen Nahar, Director of National Institute of Design, India.

Closing – 19:20 to 19:30
Ken Friedman and Guillermina Noël

Discussion Part III – 18:55 to 19:15
Jorge Frascara and Gjoko Muratovski discuss their articles with two students: Luisa Mohler and Linus Mäder.
