On November 29 the SVA MFA Design Criticism department hosts its first reading night at KGB Bar in the East Village.
Addressing the concept of home from different angles are: Metropolis magazine columnist Karrie Jacobs, design, technology and culture writer David Womack, and conceptual artist Elizabeth Demaray.
Jacobs reads an excerpt from her 2006 book, The Perfect $100,000 House, which chronicles the author's nationwide search for a place to call home; Womack recounts the virtues of lightweight living, a revelation received while backpacking in the Sierra Nevadas; and Demaray speaks about a project in which she created alternative plastic housing for homeless hermit crabs.
This event inaugurates a bi-monthly series of reading nights, organized in anticipation of the Design Criticism program's launch at the School of Visual Arts in Fall 2008.
