Australian Cybernetic: a point through time

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

9 Nov 2022 Once Only Event

‘Australian cybernetic: a point through time’ is a new exhibition on at the Australian National University (ANU) that revisits both exhibitions and introduces reflections on contemporary approaches to cybernetics underway at the ANU.

At ANU School of Cybernetics, design is an essential component to thinking about complex systems and the relationships between them in order to imagine and enable new approaches to shaping the future through and with technology.

Join the School’s Design Convenor Andrew Meares for a conversation about Australian cybernetic: a point through time and how the School of Cybernetics is reanimating cybernetics for the 21st Century. Through design perspectives, Andrew will discuss how cybernetics investigates the interdependencies within and between systems, and how we can use this knowledge to ask questions and build intentionally towards the futures we want to see.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.

For those unable to make it to Canberra for the panel discussion, it will be livestreamed online via the Library’s Facebook page. No bookings are required to watch the online stream.

Cybernetic thinking for a new world is presented by the ANU School of Cybernetics in partnership with the National Library of Australia.
