David Peterson: Design Principles Behind Authentic Language Creation​

Thursday, October 4 at 7pm
Duncan Anderson Gallery      
Free Admission

From shows like HBO's Game of Thrones and movies like Avatar, you may have heard of conlanging: the intentional construction of language. Designing a language can seem like a daunting task, but creating a functional language is rather simple, albeit time consuming. The languages created for Game of Thrones and other shows like The 100Defiance, and Bright go beyond mere functionality, though. In this talk David Peterson will describe his process of authentic language creation, and detail how it applies both to spoken and written language invention. David Peterson is a language creator and author. He received a BA in English and a BA in Linguistics from UC Berkeley in 2003, and an MA in Linguistics from UC San Diego in 2005. Starting with HBO's Game of Thrones in 2009, David has been a professional language creator for almost ten years, and has created languages for almost 20 television shows, movies, and video games, including the CW's The 100, Marvel's Doctor Strange, and Netflix's Bright. In 2015 he released The Art of Language Invention with Penguin Books, a detailed guide to creating an authentic constructed language.

Tim Hwang: Manufacturing Authority
 

Thursday, September 27 at 7pm
Duncan Anderson Gallery      
Free Admission

 

Governments, corporations, and religions are formidable institutions, whose power emerges not just from their resources but from a bundle of symbols and processes of authority: important-sounding titles, formal legal language, imposing offices, seals, certifications, and so on. Power is not just possessed, but actively manufactured through design of all kinds. But, like many other things, what was formerly the preserve of the few has become widely distributed to all. While these symbols still pack a punch, today the tools are available for nearly everyone to copy these design patterns for fun and profit. This talk will unpack a brief history of this kind of design, examining the historical record of using visuals, architecture, and processes to establish and extend authority on the behalf of the grand institutions of society.

Joshua G. Stein is the founder of Radical Craft and the co-director of the Data Clay Network, a forum for the exploration of digital techniques applied to ceramic materials. Radical Craft is a Los Angeles-based research and design studio operating between fields of architecture, art and urbanism. Radical Craft advances design saturated in history (from archaeology to craft) that inflects the production of contemporary urban spaces and artifacts, evolving newly grounded approaches to the challenges posed by virtuality, velocity, and globalization. Recent projects engage earthen materials that resist easy manipulation, whether in raw or consolidated states. Stein has taught at the California College of the Arts, Cornell University, SCI-Arc, and the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. He was a 2010-11 Rome Prize Fellow in Architecture, and is currently Professor of Architecture at Woodbury University.
