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%"?
