[medium design collective, ongoing]

Part of the Medium Design Collective, as the leader for the Experience subteam, my vision is to evolve event design beyond the physical space to curate an emotional and mental experience. For the 2020-2021 school year, my team and I have curated a series of panels, workshops, and events that challenge expectations, illuminate unexplored topics, and exceed expectations. I assist in ideation and development, mentoring, poster design, while also developing and moderating my own panels panels.

[beyond food: conversations with unconventional creators]

What if we take a step back and look at food in a different way? Join us in a conversation of an international panel of food artists, who have been featured on Buzzfeed, BoredPanda, HuffPost, and more. Learn about the nuances of their design process and media attention has shaped their works, or not. How do they balance standing out with their art and belonging to the art world? Moderated by Daphne Tan, poster design by Miriam Gitelman.

[conversational medium panel]

This panel aims to address our need to create and speak for social good. We know that hardships exist in the world so we aim to be moral and address these issues, but sometimes our need to seem morally correct obscures the good we can do. How can we critique our own privileges and performative actions to be more empathetic and achieve the understanding we hope for? Moderated by Dana Gong, poster design by Miriam Gitelman.

[healing spaces]

The purpose of this panel is to spark conversations about how design can create an environment conducive to the healing process. Science has proven that architectural designs, known as healing spaces, can contribute and extend to wellness and health through human-centered designs. Through the panel, perhaps the event can inspire attendees to implement design elements to reconsider designing for spaces, but to build to heal. Moderated by Ryun Shim, poster design by Miriam Gitelman.

In Progress

 

If time is not the precise ticking of seconds to minutes, minutes to hours, and hours to days, what is time? Is it an abstract toy of science? A gold inlaid toy of dilettants manufactured by the swiss, or something else altogether?
