Amy Whitaker - The New Normal

Amy Whitaker

New York University

From The Conference September 04, 2017

"For better of worse, we live in a very complex economy that doesn't give us space to venture into what is new"


Amy Whitaker means that art is a process of moving forward into the unknown. She wants us to think of art as a Swiss army knife. Instead of moving from point A to B, we should invent point B. 


Things that we once thought were strange are normal today. By highlighting historical examples, Amy Whitaker, professor of business in the art school at New York University, shows us that art and design are tools that help us both ask questions and refine solutions.
