Event Description

Acclaimed author and D-Crit faculty member Akiko Busch will join us in the department to discuss ideas from her new book, How to Disappear: Notes on Invisibility in a Time of Transparency. She will center her attention on the chapter “Invisible Ink” and consider “why the ink we do not see is as much a part of contemporary human expression as the ink we do see.”

Her previous essay collections include Geography of Home, The Uncommon Life of Common Objects, Nine Ways to Cross a River, and The Incidental Steward. She was a contributing editor at Metropolis magazine for twenty years, and her essays about design, culture, and nature have appeared in numerous national magazines, newspapers, and exhibition catalogues. She has taught at the University of Hartford and Bennington College and is currently on the faculty at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
