DFR Talks continue
As part of the interactive DFR Talks, lecturers from the university course Designing Future Realities will talk about their projects, experiences and visions.
On March 18, 2021, editor and professor for architecture theory at TU Vienna, Vera Bühlmann, will give a presentation about the topic: On the multifarious lives of umbrageous objects: A neo-baroque cast of questions to unsettle digital ontologies.
On the multifarious lives of umbrageous objects:
A neo-baroque cast of questions to unsettle digital ontologies. In search for how social and environmental change can be driven sustainably today, perhaps one question becomes especially important: namely that which asks about the relation between computation and time.
This DFR Talk will present and discuss 5 abstract figures of thought (tropes) for design-thinking, that engage with ‘recycling’ in this manner.
- Of Lax Scope: Times of Crisis, Outrage and Computation
- Vanitas: Algebra and Nullity
- Umbrageous Objects: An Ars Memoria that aims at Forgetting
- Decreation and Advocacy (Fürsprache): Philology and Code
- Copia and Consumption: Circular Writing and Still Lives today
