The embrace of discomfort | Iris Angelopoulou

The embrace of discomfort | Iris Angelopoulou

We encounter adaptation every day (culture shock is an example of adaptation). Sitting next to someone at work you don’t really know. Trying to understand someone speaking a different language. You are always being asked to adapt, and the thing that differentiates us as humans is that we can consciously choose to adapt or to reject. In this talk, Iris makes discomfort comforting.

Iris Angelopoulou is currently studying Design Communication Arts at UCLA Extension, focusing on experience and environmental graphic design. She also holds a BA in Communication & Media from the National University of Athens and a BS in Business Management from the University College London.
