Ontologically Oriented Objects with Parsons & Charlesworth: Design Week Portland at the School of Architecture

Can an existing mass-produced object be transformed in a week into a mysterious new thing? Leading up to this lecture by artists and designers Tim Parsons and Jessica Charlesworth, the School of Architecture at Portland State University will hold a week-long design competition where several teams of students will be given the same object and asked to transform it into something else entirely. These Mysterons, or mysterious things, will be displayed and critiqued by Parsons and Charlesworth, who create work that reflects upon the current and future state of our designed culture. Following this public critique of the Mysterons, Parsons and Charlesworth will give a public lecture at Shattuck Hall Annex.

Mysteron Critiques:  Friday, April 20, 2018, 3 to 4pm 
Talk by Parsons & Charlesworth:  Friday, April 20, 2018, 4 to 5pm

Free and open to the public. Register with Design Week Portland.
