emergence is change.

Original emergent identityThe words that keep cycling through my head as I think about emergence are patterns, adaptation, and change. As I think about my previous pieces that I felt showcased “emergence” in some way, shape, or form, I thought about my inspirational piece, “Emergent Identity” that I designed 2 years ago as an interactive installation. Something I had been interested in, but haven’t thought about recently is how public art can be used to interrupt the everyday and affect change– creating an opportunity to design emergence where it isn’t happening and affect social change by breaking the pattern or otherwise altering the expected situation.
