Every year, ByDesign brings together a diversity of people, ideas and creative visions to explore intersections of design and the moving image. The program celebrates artists who combine forms and disciplines to transform our visual culture.
ByDesign 17 features an array of guest artists, documentaries, short films, and presentations that illuminate the roots, currents and future of design in motion.
From a documentary about the formidable writer and activist Jane Jacobs, to an interactive event that explores the designs of 3D worlds in 90s video games, to a film that takes us through the transformative era of pre-digital graphic design, and a discussion of the ways in which animation allows designers to test their thinking and expand their vision, ByDesign 2017 highlights the creative spirit that drives architecture and design.
Through films, presentations, and conversations, ByDesign explores the intersections of design and the moving image and illuminates the roots, currents and future of design in motion. The program celebrates artists who combine forms and disciplines to transform our visual culture.
