When asked how he connected to the project’s main theme, creating a human-centered technological future, Smith said, “It’s funny for me because I am a digital illustrator, and for the vast quantities of my days, I’m a cyborg plugged into my Macbook.

“This world I live in, this technological age — it’s indistinguishable from magic. I couldn’t tell you what’s going on behind my Macbook screen … yet I’m entirely dependent on it for my living and my creative expression.”

Students and faculty can expect to see future events from the Lincoln Center focusing on the Humane Technology Tarot Deck, and guests who joined the event at Humanities Week all received their own set of cards to take home. 

"The Lincoln Center is very much committed to the idea that the knowledge and outputs that we bring into the world are and need to be co-designed,” Bennett said. “What that means in practice is making sure you consider again and again whose voices are and are not in the room and how (they) are and are not being heard.”
