Starlee Kine, “How to Capture the Culture Zeitgeist: What Phil Collins and Zombies Have in Common” – SVA MA Design Research

Starlee Kine, “How to Capture the Culture Zeitgeist: What Phil Collins and Zombies Have in Common”

Starlee Kine will discuss how she converts her personal obsessions, of both the negative and positive variety, into universal themes—and how it’s impossible not to read the comments. She will also explain her process of getting orphaned ideas out of her head.

Starlee Kine is a radio producer, writer, and pop culture critic. A frequent contributor to PRI’s This American Life, CBC Radio’s WireTap, and New York Magazine’s Vulture blog, Kine has also written for The New York Times Magazine and the object-based periodical THE THING Quarterly. She is currently working on a book about the self-help industry titled, It IS Your Fault. Along with illustrator Arthur Jones she co-created the Post-It Note Reading Series.
