        From: Theodora Vardouli, Prof. 
        Subject: Digital.Visual.Material Symposium (May 26-28, 2021)

We are thrilled to invite you to the virtual
symposium Digital.Visual.Material
(https://www.lattice.space/topics/digital-visual-material) (May 26-28,
2021), which explores the cross-disciplinary construction of a
computational imaginary of design through scholarly presentations and
first-hand accounts on pioneering efforts to transform computers into
visual and creative media.

Below is an abridged version of the symposium program, which you can
view in full onlattice.space (https://www.lattice.space/), a new
platform for critical and creative research at the nexus of design and
computation. On the website you will also find details about
registration and live-streaming of the event.

The Digital.Visual.Material symposium is linked with the forthcoming
exhibition /Vers un imaginaire numérique
(https://www.lattice.space/topics/vers-un-imaginaire-numerique)/that
will take place September 15-November 7, 2021 at the Centre de Design de
l’UQAM in Montreal. The symposium is supported by the Peter Guo-hua Fu
School of Architecture, McGill University and the Social Sciences and
Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Looking forward to seeing you later in May!

Warm wishes,

Theodora Vardouli and Daniel Cardoso Llach
