OFFF 2007 NYC Recap
PSFK spent the weekend camped out at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center attending the first US OFFF Post-Digital Creation Culture Conference. OFFF featured presentations and performances from digital artists, web and print designers, motion graphic studios and avant-garde electronic musicians over the course of three days. On paper it looked ambitious. Here’s a few of our highlights:
Paula Scher Presented the story of references from her childhood and her father that later influenced the development of her sought after map paintings. Paula spoke about how her work drew from many different experiences in her life. She spoke of rebelling against her hyper-organized father, being involved in political protests in the 60’s, and her love of images created by hand. She also presented a few projects from Pentagram including the Citi logo she originally sketched on a napkin but took over a year to finally approve.
