Ok, this is not a result of my passionate involvement – it’s merely a reflection of the fact then when one does read a lecture, it is usually somebody else who takes the pictures 🙂
And it was indeed another lecture about possible futures, and how design can help in exploring them. This time I was invited by the Department of Design of the Moscow Academy of Finance, and personally by Ekaterina Khramkova, a founder of the Russian design research agency Lumiknows and since recently a head of the faculty at the Department.
Lecture was also announced in various web-channels for professionals, but also the students of the Academy had been invited, so the audience was in the area of 80 people, and pretty diverse. The content was very similar to the one I presented in St.Petersburg, may be a bit shorter. Here again the audience was very attentive, the questions relevant, and an overall experience great ( I mention that because that was not always the case, I remember talking about similar issues a few years ago, and the level of understanding and appreciate was a way lesser).
