Title
4D Design: The Intersection of Design + Technology

Description
While we can confidently say that the future is here in terms of technological advances, we are a long way from truly understanding its impact. To do so, we need to tinker, explore, and prototype the data-infused experiences that make the physical world around us unfold over the fourth dimension: time. In this talk, Carla Diana will discuss the impact of 4D Design, from interactive objects and clothing to mixed reality and robotics, looking at the critical work that today’s design students will do to shape the world of tomorrow.

Speaker
Carla Diana is a designer, author, and educator who explores the impact of future technologies through hands-on experiments in product design and tangible interaction. She has designed a range of products from robots to connected home appliances. Her work has appeared on the covers of Technology Review, Popular Science, and the New York Times Sunday Review. She is currently developing the 4D Design Program at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
