HACKING LIFE: USING CREATIVITY TO BREAK INTO THE SYSTEM

Hacking is a word that gets thrown around a lot these days.  Yes, it’s often used to describe activities of pizza and caffeine-fueled programmers working 24 hour days to make groundbreaking code. For the rest of us, however, hacking can mean using one’s own skills to effect or alter an environment in order to gain greater access.

In all creative fields, the hacker employs an element of magic–an unconventional approach that is rarely revealed to (or fully understood by) the outside world. Using strategies and tactics that are often tangential to the core work itself, he or she is able to separate themselves from the pack and achieve revolutionary work.

This series brings three voices, in fields ranging from the visual to the culinary, to lift the veil on their own success, sharing how they have hacked traditional systems and thought-processes within their respective industries to make it big.

March 7 – Sebastian Errazuriz
Chilean born artist Sebastian has been called an artist, a designer, a director, a raconteur, an obsessive…but never boring. He will talk about the ways he hacks the world around him to advance his own work, applying his creative process to the factors that contribute to his success as much as the final works themselves.

The series, curated by AIGA/NY board members Matt Spangler and Eric Adolfsen, will focus each month on a different creative profession, bringing emerging and more established visionaries together in conjunction with MAD’s After The Museum Exhibition.
