Digital Art and Technology (DAT) welcomes visiting speaker, Agi Haines for a talk at the University.
Agi, speculative designer and COGNOVO fellow, will talk about biomedical technology, design, and morbid curiosity.
Agi's research considers the ethical implications of recognising the fabric of the human body as a potential design material.
With the onset of seemingly fantastical biomedical and healthcare technologies, she asks if designers can raise important questions as well as engage other disciplines and the public in conversations about them? How might our morbid curiosity for the viscera of life affect the future of design, a future with implications not only for the environment, but also for human beings as sentient flesh within it?
All are welcome to this talk.
