Industrial designer-turned-visual artist Anthony Chin relates his experience of transiting to an artist in our upcoming talk “From Design to Art: Creating Experiences for the Public”. He will share about his journey - the challenges and rewards - and his upcoming immersive installation that will be unveiled in March at Emerald Hill.
When asked for a book recommendation, Anthony gave us two! “‘Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind’ (Call No.: Lifestyle Design/ Culture & Society 909 HAR) cuts through the history of the human race by dividing our story into three broad ‘revolutions’. In a clear, succinct manner, the author clarifies complex concepts to illustrate the events that brought us to where we are today. While ‘Sapiens’ looks to the past, ‘Homo Deus’ (Call No.: Lifestyle Design/ Culture & Society 909.83 HAR) looks into the future and questions: will humans still be relevant?”
This programme is happening on 27 January, 4.30pm to 5.30pm, and is organised in collaboration with OH! Open House.
