Opportunity Seeking in a Shrinking World: David Mocarski at TEDxSoCal

David Mocarski has explored the boundaries of the creative process for more than thirty years. He is the principal of Arkkit forms design, as well as chairman of the Environmental Design Department at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.Mocarski is known internationally for his one-off and limited edition furniture works as well as residential & commercial interiors. His work is highly sculptural in nature, driven by research, content and context. He believes that design is "from the first moment of encounter to the last moment of interaction." Whether it's creating an object, a place or a destination, he feels that the most effective design is always about: attraction, involvement, interaction & producing satisfaction and/or inclusion beyond expectation. For all his diversity, Mocarski produces designs, which offer fresh options for how we live. He explores works which extend our perception of use, function and place. He is involved with concepts, which investigate new technology, materials and manufacturing techniques. He is continually looking to explore projects which extend Art & Design's ability to make a difference. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
