The Vasa, a Swedish warship that sank after sailing less than a nautical mile on her maiden voyage on August 10, 1628.
Ahem, yes, uh, yeah, yup. That's what things feel like. The economy sucks, and personally, I am feeling it in some unexpected ways. So rather than get in a froth, I am planning to take advantage of the free wine at Studio X. Oh yeah, they'll be a collection of smart folks there to ballast the sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.
RAPID RESPONSE: COLLAPSE!
Collapse! explores the spatial consequences of the "new" economy—the panic of 2008 as well as the last two decades, and the last two years—at a variety of scales: the NYSE trading room to Manhattan, the city to the suburbs, the United States to the world. Network Architecture Lab Director Kazys Varnelis will lead a discussion with Daniel Beunza, Assistant Professor, Management Division, Columbia Business School and Micah Fink, Emmy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker. We will be airing a segment of a film by Fink originally produced for a PBS New York Voices special on the mortgage crisis.
Collapse! is produced in collaboration with the Network Architecture Lab.
