The Powers of Eleven: 
How Shifts in Scale are Remaking the Possible
We often think of scale in two straightforward ways: as a means for comparing the relative size of things, or as a process for increasing the market share of a business product. In this presentation, I will suggest that we must begin to understand scale as a conceptual framework for thinking through the present. Digital dematerialization and network entanglements are deforming our perception and conception of scale and unsettling our capacity to link cause and effect — or design with its outcomes. Cutting across disciplines and ranging across topics (from ants to traffic circles and from surveillance systems to COVID-19), this presentation will x-ray our current social predicaments and outline design strategies for navigating the complexity of our many “broken” systems. 

Biography
Jamer Hunt collaboratively designs open and adaptable frameworks for participation that respond to emergent cultural conditions — in education, organizations, exhibitions, and for the public. He is the Vice Provost for Transdisciplinary Initiatives at The New School (2016-present), where he was founding director of the graduate program in Transdisciplinary Design at Parsons School of Design (2009-2015). He is also Visiting Design Researcher at the Institute of Design in Umea, Sweden. He is the author of Not to Scale: How the Small Becomes Large, the Large Becomes Unthinkable, and the Unthinkable Becomes Possible (2020), a book that repositions scale as a practice-based framework for navigating social change in complex systems. Fast Company has named him to their list of “Most Creative People.”  With Paola Antonelli at the MoMA he was co-creator of the award-winning, curatorial experiment and book Design and Violence (2013-15). They have also collaborated on the Design and the Elastic Mind symposium as well as on HeadSpace: On Scent as Design, and he served on her Advisory Committee for the XXII Milan Design Triennial Broken Nature. With Hilary Jay he co-founded DesignPhiladelphia in 2005, at that time the country’s largest design week. He has published over twenty articles on the poetics and politics of design, including for Fast Company and the Huffington Post, and he is co-author, with Meredith Davis, of Visual Communication Design (Bloomsbury, 2017).
