The art of communication, from an architect’s point of view

I often post events on behalf of Science Gallery, and I’ve never even been, but soooo want to go, especially to this event:

17:02:11 18:00 – 20:00
COMMUNICATING COMMUNICATIONS: An illustrated lecture inspired by Ray & Charles Eames’ film A Communications Primer (1953)

CTVR and Hugh Campbell, Professor of Architecture UCD, invite you to a lively discussion about contemporary understanding of communication and design, particularly questioning how we communicate complexity, and how we design for communication. Inspired by the work of Charles & Ray Eames, CTVR presents a cinema-style screening of the 23 min film A Communications Primer (1953), introduced by Linda Doyle and Jessica Foley, followed by an illustrated lecture presented by Hugh Campbell, which will explore Eames’ design thinking using A Communications Primer as a starting point.

Tickets are free but pre-booking is essential: http://www.sciencegallery.com/events/2011/02/communicating-communications-illustrated-lecture-inspired-ray-charles-eames-film-comm

It’s got everything: film, art, history, communication, design, and manipulation! 🙂
