2006 Distinguished Lecture - David Byrne

Event Date: 

Wednesday, March 8, 2006 - 12:00pm

Former head Talking Head and creative dynamo David Byrne has turned his attention to the ubiquitous presentation software PowerPoint, developing the book Envisioning Emotional Epistemological Information and this surprising, comic and touching performance piece.

"I have been working with PowerPoint as an art medium for a number of years. It started off as a joke (this software is a symbol of corporate salesmanship, or lack thereof) but then the work took on a life of its own as I realized I could create pieces that were moving, despite the limitations of the 'medium.'" - David Byrne
