Interactive essays on social politics. Playful investigations of complexity. Telling stories through systems. Join us for a lecture and conversation with Nicky Case, a designer whose body of work is devilishly difficult to categorize. Her award-winning games include Parable of the Polygons (with Vi Hart), which takes an economic model from a 1971 paper on segregation and turns it into an “explorable explanation” about bias and diversity. Or LOOPY, where you create complex systems that spring to life as you draw them. Or The Evolution of Trust, which uses a story from the WWI trenches to explore the thorny knots of game theory. Please join us for a stimulating conversation with this prolific and brilliant designer.
