This week's episode: "Folk Design" with special guest Jack Atherton, designer, researcher, and CCRMA Ph.D. candidate. We will unpack folk design and learn about Jack's work combining design for human flourishing, VR, and interactive machine learning. Using a tool code-named "Reality by Example", Jack will also lead us in a group folk design exercise to create and populate a VR island with terrain, music, trees, and animals.
