Laurie Rosenwald is a New York City-based illustrator, artist, designer, and book creator whose work is a mix of collage, drawing, painting, and storytelling. Rosenwald has created animation, product design, and leads an ongoing popular workshop, "How to Make Mistakes on Purpose."
Three generations of humans have now been molded into results-oriented workers who cannot mess up, and therefore may never innovate either. Shared software, skills, and experiences equal no surprises. Surrounded by the unwavering, reliable results made possible by a machine, we all marinate in this ubiquitous cybersauce. Behold! Thousands of shiny new apps, sites, products, and services that look, feel, and are essentially the same. Because computers don’t make mistakes.
A fresh, colorful guide to discovery, with clearly marked directions and witty prompts, this is a book about living a productive, individualistic life. Whatever your job, it gives you a way to zig while everyone around you can only zag. It will also make you laugh along the way.
Rosenwald will be in conversation with with writer, director, performer, creative director, provocateur, and entrepreneur Risa Mickenberg.
NOTE: This event will include a mini “Mistakes on Purpose” workshop - no experience necessary. To participate, please have handy 30+ sheets of any kind of blank paper; black marker or crayon, or sharpened pencils; phone with a camera, or digital camera.
This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
