How can our deeper understanding of language inform our designs for a better world? How does design of new language allow us to determine the influence and direction of the worlds we build? As storytellers and world builders in immersive media, how can we use new language in storytelling to change the world?
These and other questions about the humanitarian role and responsibility of immersive design will be explored at 5D | Design is Change "The Language of World Building" at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles on December 3, 2009.
Three of the world's leading innovators in data visualization, computer science, robotics, software engineering, communications, and human and digital anthropology will examine and discuss design and experience of language, its use in narrative technologies, its impact on human understanding, and its role in social change to create better digital and real worlds.
Featuring Jo-Ann Kuchera-Morin, AlloSphere; Kevin Carpenter, Hanson Robotics; Amber Case, Cyborg Anthropologist; moderated by me, Paulynn Cue, 5D Design is Change program curator.
