What are the “stations” of our work, interactions, and play? When our networks are not only local but also regional, global, and frequently “virtual,” where is activity situated? Do we yearn for both fixity of place and transitory freedom? What are the tensions, if any, between these extremes? The more that mobility is privileged, does place matter less? How might stations—their locations, design, histories, and potential—benefit and/or hamper relationships and professional practices?
Join DesignInquiry in Vinalhaven, Maine to consider the dimensions of STATION—the contemporary “placeness” of life and work, which is increasingly portable, networked, and multi-faceted. Spend a week in June making the island a hub of diverse creative networks and a productive junction of thinking and making.
