How do the objects that inhabit our world determine our relationship to them and our perceptions of space? Glenn Adamson, head of graduate studies at the Victoria and Albert Museum, is noted for introducing new critical thought about decorative arts and design in his books Thinking through Craft and The Craft Reader, and as co-editor of the Journal of Modern Craft. At the DIA, Dr. Adamson will consider how makers attempt to structure an intimate connection between the viewer/user and an object.
