In quantum physics, the term entanglement refers to the phenomenon of multiple simultaneous elements that are deeply intertwined and only truly known in relation to each other. “Entangled” expresses the interdependent scientific, social and environmental issues that define the current moment and how they are leading to enormous complexity, change, and crisis. Designers will give short presentations exploring how their work considers the interconnection and interaction of multiple realities, in projects that address ecology, technology, and social justice. A panel discussion with Q&A will follow.

For almost 40 years, artists Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese have collected presidential campaign television ads; every election year, they release their updated anthology.
