Thursday, October 27, 7 p.m. Doheny Memorial Library, Friends Lecture Hall, Room 240

Wednesday, November 2, 5 p.m. Gin D. Wong Auditorium, Harris Hall 101

Join us for a provocative evening of performance, media art and rebel phones. The event will feature the Transborder Immigrant Tool, a mobile-phone app by Ricardo Dominguez and the Electronic Disturbance Theater that helps sustain those crossing the border into the United States via directions to water and poetry; Voces Móviles/Mobile Voices (VozMob), a collaboration between USC’s Annenberg School and the Institute of Popular Education of Southern California, featuring the voices of day laborers; and the LA Flood Project, a locative media narrative about crises in Los Angeles— both historical and imagined. The evening will also include photographs by Maria de Lourdes González Reyes, a reading by Roberto Leni-Olivares and a discussion moderated by USC Annenberg professor Josh Kun.

Architecture today rolls, flows, inflates, breathes, expands, multiplies, contracts and searches for its next user. A range of creative forces behind mobile architecture will come together to examine solutions to current economic, social and environmental concerns in the housing industry; identify emerging technologies and trends; and synthesize recent advancements in design and manufacturing. Participants will include Allison Arieff, editor at large at GOOD and contributing columnist at the New York Times; Barry Bergdoll, the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art; Stephen Kieran, partner at KieranTimberlake; Robert Kronenburg, architect, author and Roscoe Chair of Architecture at the University of Liverpool; and Michael Webb, founding member of Archigram and professor at Cooper Union.

Organized by Mark C. Marino (Writing Program) and Roberto Leni-Olivares (Anthropology). Co-sponsored by the Institute for Multimedia Literacy, the Center for Transformative Scholarship and the Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration.
