The new lecture series of the Institute of Visual Communication presents a series of communication, design, and art practices meandering between analog and digital processes. The outcomes of these individual journeys pose the question, in which sense there is materiality in digital environments, and in which form the digital can appear in materialized objects.

Keetra Dean Dixon is a designer whose work inhabits exploratory terrain, leveraging emergent technologies and process-focused making. She’s US based, dividing her time between the East Coast and rural Alaska. Her work and research in areas of typography, object based learning, and experiential design have earned her a professorship with RISD, a US Presidential Award, a place in the permanent design collection at SFMOMA, and an ADC Young Gun Award (6). She's an internationally feature speaker and has spoken at FITC, OFFF, the Type Directors Club and AIGA National Design Conferences to name a few. She's designed and directed installations at the Venice Architecture Biennale, her objects are carried by the Tate, and she’s shown at the Walker Art Center, the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, the National Design Museum and the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC.
