Friday, September 19, 2014
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm
George Oates (Good, Form & Spectacle)
George Oates is a designer in the information gathering phase of a project to do just that, to make a working model of a museum. Come and enjoy a speculative design session on what the museum of the 21st Century could be.

George Oates has worked on the web since 1996. She was the lead designer at Flickr  from its inception until 2008, where she invented the Flickr Commons. She redesigned the Open Library system at the Internet Archive from scratch, and then went on to do art direction at Stamen Design. About three months ago, she left Stamen to start her own thing, a design firm called Good, Form & Spectacle. The firm's mission is design in service to cultural heritage.
