C-U-B-E will exhibit a body of work Seven Acting States design work by graphic designer and educator, James Chae. His work visualizes areas of instability in a world of constant change by synthesizing his research conducted within seven broad themes: energy, religion, gender, capital, race, debt, and technology. In his work, he encapsulates how the seven subjects affect the designer and the position the designer can take. His creative design outcomes include posters, flags, motion posters, handbooks, and leaflets that demonstrate his research and writing. Also, the exhibition will be accompanied by his lecture as well as prompts for young designers to bring their interests into their graphic design practices. The designer's talk and workshop will be held on Wednesday, January 17, 2018.
