A public salon series exploring design's impact on the world.

Screens are everywhere. They live in our back pockets, along the side of our roads, and in our grocery stores. Sometimes they smile at us from the ceiling, distracting us from the dentist drill. Most of us spend a good 8 hours a day staring into one sort of screen or another. These glowing portals beckon us with promises of being useful, meaningful, even joyful. But do they meet those promises? Therein lies the topic of our upcoming salon: should we use a screen at all? Are we thinking creatively enough about how to solve today’s problems, or is the screen just...a lazy solution? And, when we do carefully, appropriately choose the screen, how do we design it in a way that truly serves people? Please bring your thoughts about this topic to our next Cooper Parlor. RSVP, as space is limited to 60. 

When: Sept 19, 6:30-8:30pm (doors open at 6)

Where: Cooper, 100 First St. Floor 26, San Francisco
