From Excel Sheets to Erotic Lyrics” is the suggestive title of the officially opening lecture of the 2016-17 year, given by the designer Pau García, Alumni of ELISAVA and co-founder of the famous collective Domestic Data Streamers, who this year will also be part of the teaching staff of the School.

On Wednesday, October 19th, Pau García will offer us a brief overview of the history of Domestic Data Streamers and the values on which the collective is based, as well as a series of reflections about which role do design and the designer have in the creation of future scenes, of what today is unthinkable and of what tomorrow will be possible.

Pau was born in Barcelona by the end of the 80s and his research is based on the communication and new communication technologies areas. In his early years of university, he pointed his studies on the biologic field with the hope of becoming a dentist. Then, he realized that life is too short to be spending it with the hands inside of someone else’s mouth, so he eventually studied Social Sciences and continued his education at ELISAVA studying Graphic Design.

In 2012, he won a European Prize for developing a project of experimental cartography in collaboration with the European Institute of Design, in Milan. Since then, he has developed different research projects of art and communication in Italy, Germany, Norway, France and Spain. Nowadays, he's part of Domestic Data Streamers, a studio focused on the design of research and information that works for cultural institutions like Berkeley University, organizations like UNICEF and companies like Nike or Spotify.

Furthermore, he works as a curator of ÚsBarcelona, an art festival that gathers the best creative talents of the urban art scene across Europe
