John Banks- An Artist's Strategies For Adapting To Technological Change
In a time when technology is advancing faster than you can swipe, the old ways we were initially taught to think, learn, and create may no longer be serving us. How can a modern business succeed in the technological wild west? Better yet, how can a modern business thrive off the onslaught of possibility? According to John Banks, artist, Chair of the new MA in Innovation and Creative Technology program at John F. Kennedy University, and speaker for our latest Soapbox discussion, one place we can look is artists, who have always been the first adopters of new technologies, and who have always had a different way of working than has traditionally been taught. “An artist is more interested in questions than answers,” explains Banks,. “If you’re asking questions, it keeps your mind open to possibilities, which is one of the keys to innovation.” Whether you’re crazy for technology or concerned about technology, join us to hear more about problem solving, troubleshooting, and just plain playing around from an artist’s point of view.
