Full Summary: "Machine Epistemology: Rethinking the Knowledge Culture of Design"

Rachel Dickey is the Design Innovation Fellow at Ball State University and a researcher in the Institute for Digital Fabrication research group. She holds a Master of Design Studies with a concentration in technology from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and Master of Architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology, where she received the Ventulett Distinguished Chair Award and Prize for her project Weil Veil: A Bereavement Community Center for New Orleans.

The Machine Epistemology lecture will introduce a collection of projects, developed as part of research and practice, which attempt to demonstrate the potential of epistemic design agency. Adopting the machine as a theoretical way of framing the discussion, the intent is to outline what types of knowledge architects have historically sought to acquire, in order to question what the knowledge culture of design is and what it ought to be. 

Lunch is provided and sponsored by the School of Architecture.
