      Gerald Phillips Design Lecture: John Maeda

      Tuesday, September 19, 6PM

      John Maeda is Sony Career Development Professor fo Media Arts and
      Sciences, Associate Professor of Design and Computation at the MIT
      Media Laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He attended MIT where
      he was awarded the bachelors and masters degreess in Computer Science
      and completed his doctoral studies in graphic design at the Tsukuba
      University Institute of Art and Design in Tsukuba, Japan. There he
      began to experiment with ideas on ways to bond the simplicity of good
      graphic design together with the complex nature of the computer.
      Those experiments grew into a series of five books called "Reactive
      Books" that are today a worldwide-recognized standard for high
      quality digital media design. His commercial work for Shiseido
      Cosmetics, Sony, and Morisawa was honored in 1996 in the one-man
      exhibition, "John Maeda: Paper and Computer" at the Ginza Graphic
      Gallery in Tokyo, Japan and the Dai Nippon Duo Dojima Gallery in
      Osaka, Japan. He recently published the 256-page book "Design by
      Numbers" from The MIT Press which outlines the theoretical
      underpinnings of his work as a combination of graphical examples and
      codes. His new book, "Maeda@Media" is a 50-page bok that underlines a
      decade of his experiments in digital media and is forthcoming in
      October 2000.
