Event description
Combine your love of reading and design with the AIGA Book Club! AIGA members and non-members are invited to join this free, in-person book club. We’ll explore a variety of topics focused on design history, theory and practice. Attendees will be invited to join the online community on Goodreads where you can explore and add book recommendations, view the reading list, sign up for in-person meetings, discuss books, and share your opinions.
This month, learn how people are having a difficult time "getting lost" in a fast paced digital world, one where our every move is tracked and we're pushed more into bubbles that reinforce what we already think. The digital platforms and tools of today give us what they think we want based on what we've done before. Their core belief is that we'll discover more of who we are based on who we've already been. Instead, we'll explore the power of getting lost and look at how setting out into the unknown is often the most thrilling and rewarding experience we can have.
A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rececca Solnit
Written as a series of autobiographical essays, A Field Guide to Getting Lost draws on emblematic moments and relationships in Rebecca Solnit's life to explore issues of uncertainty, trust, loss, memory, desire, and place. Solnit is interested in the stories we use to navigate our way through the world, and the places we traverse, from wilderness to cities, in finding ourselves, or losing ourselves. While deeply personal, her own stories link up to larger stories, from captivity narratives of early Americans to the use of the color blue in Renaissance painting, not to mention encounters with tortoises, monks, punk rockers, mountains, deserts, and the movie Vertigo. The result is a distinctive, stimulating voyage of discovery.
