Visibly Invisible Lecture – Feb 21 @ UArts
As part of the continuing lecture series Visibly Invisible, the Corzo Center for the Creative Economy presents this engaging talk with Thaddeus Squire. Titled “Hide and Seek,” this free lecture takes place in Hamilton Hall at the University of the Arts.
Squire is the founder of Hidden City Philadelphia – festival, online magazine, tour company. He will address the yearning for history in pop culture: from the prison fantasies of Piranesi to Mayan expedition drawings, Indiana Jones, “National Treasure” and “Tomb Raider;” from the retro-chic of Restoration Hardware and Anthroplogie to online gaming and the emerging photo genre of “ruin porn.”
This lecture series challenges us to stop and look with fresh eyes at the beauty and possibilities all around us. When we stop seeing and experiencing what we live with and become blind to familiar things, systems and surroundings, design thinking can shift our vision, literally making what is right in front of us visible again. The Visibly Invisible speakers encourage us to look at the world from a refreshed angle.
The speakers – who teach, write, invent and curate – are recognized intellects who share their passions in remarkably user-friendly ways.
