The Beauty in the Impermanent

A session at New Adventures in Web Design 2013

Thursday 24th January, 2013

2:45pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

As designers, makers and creators, we often think in terms of form and function—but what about time? We tend to build and design as if time didn't exist, as if everything were made of plastic that is to last for thousands of years. Could we perhaps learn from an ancient aesthetic movement that began in medieval Asia, and embrace impermanence in our digital world?
