Architect and illustrator Gilbert Gorski will lecture on “Architecture in the Age of Digitalism” to mark the official opening of an exhibit of his work January 30 at 5 p.m. in the Bond Hall Auditorium.
Gorski's exhibit, “Paintings, Drawings, and Etchings,” runs from January 14 through February 8 in the Bond Hall Gallery.
“If work is to be relevant and meaningful for present as well as future generations, the media employed to transmit and project ideas cannot be excluded from the creation and production of those ideas,” says Gorski, the James A. and Louise F. Nolen Associate Professor of Architecture. “Today, nearly all ideas communicated on a widespread scale are digitized. Media not conveyed digitally is becoming irrelevant. To create entirely with traditional methods and tools ignores the present relationship between media and message.”
