Lab Café Special featuring Search Project - "Science Technology in Our Daily Lives"

2016-6-21 (Tue) 19:30 - 21:00

Our lives are surrounded by science technology. Through science technology, we can become aware, learn, and overcome disasters, but on the other hand, an environment in which science technology is halted due to disaster can cause a dramatic change in our daily lives. Now, discussing disasters could be considered discussing the relationship between science technology and society. For this café, we've invited Prof. NAKAMURA Masaki, author of Post-3/11 Science and Government and an expert in Science Technology Society Theory and Science Technology History, to discuss with us the problems regarding science technology and society as seen through disaster, as well as the relationship between science technology and society.

Guest

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
