We hear about new environmentally responsible practices and clean tech all the time, so why aren’t we seeing sweeping results? The problem isn’t lack of technologies or policy solutions; it's apathy at both personal and corporate levels. To achieve real progress, we need to design for factors like urgency, empowerment, self-interest, and intuitiveness of action. In other words, for people knowing: - Delaying is as catastrophic as doing nothing - I can have real impact (not a drop in a bucket) - Acting now benefits me personally - I have a list of things I can easily do today Discuss how you can create real behavior change across consumers at scale to support environmentally responsible practices, policies, and products.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Opening Reception |
At a time of uncertainty such as now, what are the ways artists can employ their craft to express their concerns? What is on your mind at this time? With a world filled with conflict, war, poverty, climate change and xenophobia, how does this generation cope with these conditions at large? Some artists rely on traditional genres that they update to incorporate generational additions, while others seek novel means of expression to organize their mindsets. This exhibition brings together a group of diverse artists whose work reflects such concerns. The group has participants from the United States, Macau, Mexico, Japan, Mainland China and Saudi Arabia. Using diverse materials such as painting, an installation employing carpets and toy soldiers, ceramics, cardboard boxes and ready-made popular culture objects, this group of young artists invests their thoughts in ways that describe individual identity while at the same time engage with the cultural world at large. Artists in the exhibition include Wai Man Chan, Dakin Platt, Edgar Alan Rodriguez Castillo, Alizé Santana, Masamitsu Shigeta and Li Zeng (pictured).

Lecture |
The relationship between knowledge and visual forms has changed as tools and platforms used for data display, discovery, and modeling have become ubiquitous. These practices raise basic questions about the nature of visual epistemology—whether it is a primary, secondary, or tertiary form of knowledge. This talk addresses some of the ways these practices and the assumptions on which they are based raise concerns for work in the humanities, broadly considered. Current projects in computational and digital scholarship form one set of focus points for this talk, but the argument stresses conceptual continuities between analog and digital practices in order to call attention to the particular features of computational work in information visualization. At stake are questions of cultural authority and the politics of representation as well as issues in the status of visuality as they relate to future research. With: Johanna Drucker
