Nature 3.x Where is Nature Now? Symposium, April 17-18, 2015

April 17-18, 2015

This symposium will showcase professional and academic work by artists, designers, and other creatives from a variety of disciplines, including the sciences and humanities, to catalyze new dialogue concerning the shifting definition of nature in the 21st century. This speculation requires an interdisciplinary examination of critical works that fosters intellectual discovery, challenging design professions and the public to consider the opportunities for design in shaping this critical dialogue.
