    Design Museum Mornings: Invoking Change Through Modular Design

    Hand-Eye Supply

    This June, Portland State University’s own Todd Ferry will share how creating socially-conscious mobile spaces can address community concerns, from education to homes, to opera-on-wheels. Todd Ferry is a Research Associate and Faculty Fellow at the Center for Public Interest Design within PSU’s School of Architecture. Todd has been active in progressive design-build projects in Portland’s neighborhoods and around the world. Todd’s current focus in on developing new models of engagement for fully including all members of a community in the design process.

    Taking place at Hand-Eye Supply the morning of June 9th, this Design Museum Mornings will address what modular design can do to sustainably benefit the community. Complete with breakfast and coffee, this second monthly installation is not to be missed!

    FUTEL: THE TELEPHONE OF THE FUTURE, TODAY

    Hand-Eye Supply

    At first glance, Futel is nothing more than a collection of payphones installed in publicly accessible locations, no different than the phones found on every street corner. Except one doesn’t have to pay to use them. And if the caller doesn’t have a human to interact with, one will be provided. And there aren’t any payphones around anymore, anyway.

    Find out what we hope to achieve by starting a free telephone network. We will discuss our spiritual ancestors in the phone phreak and mail artist community, as well as our philosophical background in creating useful and nonuseful devices out of discarded junk, and the importance of retaining skills with obsolete interactive technology.
