Through examples of Scott Doorley’s own work in and outside of the Stanford d.school and alternate cases that may be suggestive of things to come, we’ll dissect if, how, and why the future may be more low tech than we imagine.

Bio: 

Scott Doorley is the creative director of the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (the “d.school”) and the co-author of “Make Space: How to Set the Stage for Creative Collaboration.”.

Scott’s work focuses on how physical context and digital media can use drama to create authentic interactions. As a member of the d.school since its early days, he works on a variety of projects, from shaping the future vision of the institute to designing the many iterations of the d.school’s various homes on Stanford’s campus. He teaches classes at the intersection of design and media arts: storytelling & visual communication, improv, and digital media design.

Scott’s design work is informed by his 10 years of work in the film industry and 6 years in higher education. He approaches design and education with a theatrical bent. As an artist, Scott’s large-scale digital installations with the Dacha Art Collective have been exhibited in the San Jose Museum of Art and the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts San Francisco.

Scott has degrees in film from the University of California, Los Angeles (B.A. ’96), and in learning, design, & technology from Stanford University (M.A. ’06).
