Mix09 is coming next week. I can’t wait to be there and see all the announcements about Silverlight 3. Since this is the main Microsoft RIA event it is loaded with enough Silverlight and WPF content to keep even an aged RIA veteran happy.
Mix is more than just technology news however. The Mix team always stages an abundance of activities and social events during the week.
On Wednesday they will be showing the movie Objectified.
Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the designers who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability.
Through vérité footage and in-depth conversations, the film documents the creative processes of some of the world’s most influential product designers, and looks at how the things they make impact our lives. What can we learn about who we are, and who we want to be, from the objects with which we surround ourselves?
Brainstorming the film logo
