Born in 1943 in Poland, I received an M.F.A. in industrial design from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw in 1968. 1 immigrated to Canada in 1977 and to the United States in 1983. 1 am now a professor and director of M.I.T.'s Center for Advanced Visual Studies. I am known for two seemingly different yet strongly related kinds of public projects: instrumentations and projections. In both cases I propose design as intervention, as supplement to the already meaning-saturated urban environment, in order to heal the numbness that threatens the health of democratic progress by disrupting it and inserting the voices of "other" city inhabitants who have been silenced and marginalized.
