Geofutures‘ Director Chris Perry
writes in [bracket] # 2
Edited by Neeraj Bhatia and Lola Sheppard of Infranet Lab, this second volume in the impressive [bracket] series “examines the use and implications of soft today – from the scale of material innovation to territorial networks.”
In a back-to-back series of short presentations, [bracket] editorial advisors and contributors Neeraj Bhatia, Fionn Byrne, Michael Chen, Leigha Dennis, Sergio Lopez-Pineiro, Geoff Manaugh, and Chris Perry will discuss some of the collection’s most innovative soft proposals—a diverse set of projects ranging from sonic urbanism to repurposed pay-and-display whose softness lies in the way that they propose “systems, networks, and technologies that are responsive, adaptable, scalable, non-linear, and multivalent.”
On Feb 8, 2013, 6:30pm, Studio-X NYC will be hosting the New York City book launch and discussion for[bracket] goes soft. Refreshments will be served and copies of the book will be available for purchase. Free and open to the public; no RSVP necessary.
