May 9th, 2008 by Amber Frid-Jimenez

The MIT Visual Arts Program is hosting a review and party to exhibit the research and art works of the Spring 2008 Zones of Emergency teams from 5 to 9pm at 620 Putnam Ave, Cambridge, the site of the MIT FEMA Trailer. As a symbol of emergency, the site will provide a space for dialogue to examine the scale and complexity of catastrophe scenarios. Projects from two courses (MIT 4.381/4.366 and RISD GRAD-103G-01 Participatory Media: Networks, Tactics, Breakdown taught by Amber Frid-Jimenez and 4.370/4.371: Research as Artistic Practice: The FEMA Trailer Project taught by Ute Meta Bauer and Jae Rhim Lee) examine how critical design practice and technology can generate new paradigms and alternative approaches to zones of emergency and disaster relief.
