The Consumer Aesthetic Research Institute: Unearthing the Forgotten Design History of the Recent Past
Sat Aug 17: 4.15pm

** Join Evan Collins, Lead Curator / Architecture at CARI, for a presentation and discussion at NWFF, a Capitol Hill Neighborhood Design Crawl Hub! Co-presented with Design in Public on the occasion of their Seattle Design Festival **

CARI is an online research community dedicated to developing a taxonomy of recent and sometimes forgotten design aesthetics ranging from the 1970s to the present, interpreting and critiquing them in the context of societal, economic, and cultural trends. Theyll be presenting their findings of the past four years, and engaging in an interactive activity to apply the aesthetic categories theyve been investigating to the local context of Seattle.
