9.45 Peter Stebbing, Professor, Basic Design:
From Aesthetics and Sustainability to Schesiology
This talk will present a brief view of an aesthetic grammar which Peter proposes has its roots in our organic existence. One product of Peter's in-vestigations and researches which he began in 1984 is the idea of schesiology the study of relations and their consequences which is a simple tool to begin showing us how the world is deeply interconnected.

Applied Art: In and Out of the City

This lecture will explore the relationship between design, art and urban or rural spaces. Described as “applied art” many artists around the world use this ap-proach to engage with people and places. The lecture will be illustrated by ex-amples of artwork that occupies a position somewhere between art and design practice.
