Free public program. 

Berlin-based artist Susanna Hertrich in conversation with IDEO Design Director Mitch Sinclair and curator Liz Blum, as part of the exhibition "I Dread to Think…" presented by Boston Center for the Arts at the Mills Gallery at the BCA South End Campus. 

Hertrich, whose work is included in current Mills Gallery exhibition "I Dread to Think..." is a multi-disciplinary artist working at the intersection of art and technology, will discuss how her artistic research investigates the relationship of the physical body to technology-driven environments and how behavioral responses such as fear can be transposed into creative solutions. Sinclair brings another perspective to the discussion, based on her experience approaching projects from a behavioral and motivational direction, building on humanitarian design with insights to transform experiences into something rich with emotion.
