Design as Critique
While in Japan, IXDM researcher Shintaro Miyazaki will give a lecture at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, titled “Design as Critique”:
Rather than criticizing design, reality should be criticized through design. How can that type of design be made possible? As long as design is a response to reality, it encompasses a sense of interpretation and assigns value to the status quo. For that reason, design is a tool to critique reality, through “things” rather than words.
