About the Event:
Ellen Lupton will discuss her new book, demonstrating how storytelling shapes great design and exploring the psychology of visual perception from a narrative point of view.
How do vision and language interact with taste and smell? How is a joke like a trainwreck? What does a Nina Simone song taste like? How does design make us feel and do?
