Description

Making Something From Nothing: Appropriate Technology as Intentionally Disruptive Responsibility

Lecture & Performance

Friday, September 29, 2017 / 10:00am–4:00pm

MIT Building 9-255

Free and open to the public; registration encouraged.


Water scarcity and population growth are intensifying the global water crisis. One response to this is point-of-use ceramic water filters, an approach used in many parts of the world yet still in an early stage of use, deployment and impact. B. Stephen Carpenter II, Ida Ely Rubin Artist in Residence at the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) and the Department of Urban Studies & Planning (DUSP), hopes to render the global water crisis more tangible in context as a socio-environmental issue. This lecture and performance will offer a rich space in which to consider the intersections of art and public pedagogy, artistic production, environmental politics, place-based education, cultural production, socially responsive engineering and social action.
