Alice Rawsthorn is the design critic for the International Herald Tribune (‘the best design critic in the entire world’ according to Paola Antoneli, senior curator of architecture and design at the Museum of Modern Art, New York) and her new book, Hello World: Where Design Meets Life, explores design's influence on our lives. It describes how warlords, scientists, farmers, hackers, activists and designers have used design to different ends throughout history: from the macabre symbol invented by eighteenth century pirates to terrorise their victims into surrender, to one woman’s quest for the best possible prosthetic legs. Bristol Festival of Ideas presents this event in partnership with the West of England Design Forum and Spike Island.
