MercyCorps and the PNCA Collaborative Design program,
in conjunction with the exhibition "Design with the Other 90%: Cities"
present the Portland premiere of the film
*An Ecology of Mind*
with director Nora Bateson in attendance
Thursday, November 1
MercyCorps Aceh Community Room
28 SW First Avenue
Post-film discussion on "Cybernetic Cities: An Ecology of the Urban Mind"
Anthropologist Gregory Bateson specialized in looking at things -- all
kinds of things -- from multiple angles, says filmmaker Nora Bateson in
this portrait of her father. The film focuses on Bateson's ideas, his
family history and, most of all, his stories. Footage includes Bateson's
own 1930s photography from Bali (his research with Margaret Mead) along
with contemporary interviews.
Nora Bateson presents this intellectual legacy through the poetic and
personal narrative of a father-daughter relationship. Following the
one-hour film, Nora Bateson will join a discussion on ecology of the
urban mind and answer questions from the audience. How might Gregory
Bateson's practice of observation inform the way we understand cities
and look at "Design with the Other 90%"?
