Defining Innovation

Defining Innovation

An Experiment in Scholarship Exhibition

The purpose of this exhibit is to provide a foundation on the meaning of innovation, as part of engaging in the Innovation 2016 conference. Rather than accepting the dominant cultural assumptions of innovation or assuming innovation is bound in hype, the exhibit's artifacts and interactions are designed to challenge participants to rethink what constitutes innovation as a product versus innovation as a value.

Installation Location

Defining Innovations is located in the Napoleon Ballroom at the Sheraton New Orleans.
