3pm BMW Guggenheim Lab: Mapping the Distributed Self by spurse

Can paying attention to our moods help us rethink the self? Can we develop a different view of the self—a self that extends beyond our skin, out into the surrounding environment? One that is distributed and woven into the environment? In this workshop, led by creative consulting and design collaborative spurse, participants will use wayfinding and psychogeographic exercises to evolve a model of the self as a combination of mind, body, and environment.
