Tom Lloyd

Heroic Failure

PRESENTED ON SEP 23, 2011
IN LONDON @ VOL 4

Tom Lloyd is a designer, but also a thinker. In his presentation, Tom thinks about how objects, architecture, and stories are constructed; how we get from point A to point B. He speaks on the concept of "heroic failures", and asks why certain failures are looked back on with an air of love and wistfulness -- failures like the AMC DeLorean, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the rickety bridge trope -- when other failures are simply abject.

APPLAUD THIS!
