Industrial Design 2

Head: Univ.-Prof. Anab Jain

Everything is shifting: technological constructs, political situations, financial structures, ecological systems. What are the new roles for designers in a such a complex and uncertain world? At Studio Design Investigations, we investigate the opportunities and unintended consequences of such accelerated change. We then produce tools, tactics and narratives to catalyse critical thinking and transformative action towards a more hopeful and humane future.
We take an experimental and iterative approach, exploring a diversity of prototyping techniques - prototypes to tell complex stories; prototypes to find something out; prototypes to convince; prototypes to help people imagine the unimaginable. Research, thinking and making will happen concurrently. Collectively, the discussion will focus on appropriate prototyping while exploring different aesthetic expressions. Invention, intrigue, engagement will be our guides.
