International Festival of Arts & Ideas | Discussion | Designing for the 5 Senses: Storytelling in an Oversaturated World

Event time: 
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 - 5:30pm

A world oversaturated with noise and light and interruption takes an enormous toll on our sensory systems, impoverishing our experience, attention span, and empathy for each other. Itamar Kubovy, executive producer of Pilobolus, and Bruce Mau, chief creative of Massive Change Network and winner of the 2017 Cooper Hewitt National Design Award, talk about the new medium of “live” and unmediated five-senses design as a path to impact and engagement.

The twenty-third annual International Festival of Arts & Ideas brings together artists and thinkers from around the world to New Haven. Two exhibitions will be on view at the Center over the course of the festival: Art in Focus: John Goto’s “High Summer” and Celia Paul. Presented jointly by the Center and the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, this program will take place in the Center’s Lecture Hall and can also be viewed live online at
