On Saturday, October 21, 2017, MAS Context organized the fourth edition of MAS Context : Analog, our one-day event of talks, a film screening, and an onsite pop-up bookstore in Chicago. The event was organized as part of Chicago Design Week and it was hosted at The Joinery.
MAS Context : Analog gathered a group of emerging and established practitioners within the field of design who discussed their work based on four proposed themes: Food, Institution, Prototype, and Music. The event included talks by artists, architects, photographers, graphic designers, industrial designers, soil biogeochemical, and musician.
