Philip Wood to lecture

On Thursday, September 20, in conjunction with the Gallery Grooves event co-sponsored by the Goldstein Museum, Philip Wood, co-founder and creative director of CITIZEN: Citizen will lecture in 33 McNeal Hall at 7:30 p.m.

CITIZEN:Citizen is a San Francisco-based, conceptual design studio that represents designers such as Patrik Fredrikson, Ian Stallard, and Tobias Wong. Wood will discuss "how objects contain and resonate cultural concerns, histories, ideologies, etc.; how objects accumulate new standing within a virtual world; how craft is emotionally compelling; and how culture and societies imbue meaning and value into objects -- more than the designers of those objects would care to admit."
