Material and Mind: An Author Talk with Chris Bardt

March 29, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Material Encounters in partnership with PLP So Cal is delighted to welcome Christopher Bardt, AIA, to discuss his recent book, Material and Mind.

In Material and Mind, Christopher Bardt delves deeply into the interaction of mind and material world, mediated by language, image, and the process of making. He examines thought not as something “pure” and autonomous but as emerging from working with material, and he identifies this as the source of imagination and creative insight. This takes place as much in such disciplines as cognitive science, anthropology, and poetry as it does in the more obvious painting, sculpture, and design. In some fields, the medium of work is, in fact, the very medium of thinking—as fabric is for the tailor.

More info and tickets available here.

Brought to you by Material Encounters, in partnership with PLP So Cal.
