extra special extra meeting!

On Thursday, September 2nd at 6:30pm-ish, we’re teaming up with the folks at Burnhearts to screen the 2009 documentary Objectified.

RSVP for the event.

While this movie isn’t specifically about UX, there is a hell of a lot of tie-in and an amazing amount of insight to be gained.

Here’s how the Objectified site describes the movie:

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?
