Breaking News: Filtering the noise of corporate media through citizen design
The lecture will question: What happens when a social issue stops trending on social media? When the media stops
reporting it? How can designers as citizens, amplify the voices of their communities through interdisciplinary work?
Ekene Ijeoma is a socially-focused artist and designer, NYFA Fellow in Design/Architecture and New Lab/Simons
Foundation Fellow. He works with data to translate overlooked facts into informed feelings through poetic yet
pragmatic, websites, apps, installations, and performances.
He’s been featured on the cover of GDUSA's People to Watch ‘who embody the spirit of the creative community’,
named Adweek’s Creative 100 ‘visual artist whose imagination and intellect will inspire you’ and also GOOD’s GOOD 100 ‘tackling pressing global issues’. His projects Look Up and Wage Islands were named finalists in Fast Company’s 2017 World Changing Ideas Awards and The Refugee Project a finalist in Design Museum’s 2015 Design of the Year Awards. Ekene’s work has been exhibited at galleries and museums including Annenberg Center for Photography,
