Co-author of massive change to speak at influx conference

September 3, 2006

We are pleased to announce Jennifer Leonard as one of our speakers for this year’s M-Squared Conference.

Jennifer, together with Bruce Mau, authored the book “Massive Change”. The book is a celebration of the transformative potential of design to positively impact the world.

As the book’s introduction states;

“Massive Change is an ambitious project that humbly attempts to chart the bewildering complexity of our increasingly interconnected (and designed) world. We have done out best to open it up by breaking it down, and putting as many fascinating fragments as we could find back together again, between the covers of the book. We hope to make evident the design decisions that go on and are made manifest across the disciplines. Massive Change is not about the world of design; it’s about the design of the world.”

Jennifer started the project as a weekly radio broadcast before it became a book and more recently a traveling exhibition, this been on show in various cities and will open next at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago on September 15th.

For the radio show and book, Jennifer intervied some of the world’s most enlightened thinkers including; Dean Kamen, Lawrence Lessig, Stewart Brand, Bruce Sterling William McDonough, Matt Ridley and Freeman Dyson.

The conference will take place on October 3rd at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio.
