Sometimes I do a little more than just that. I am a ritual observer and collector of things, from posters to books to retired street signs. And I’m just as happy making those things, too.
Everything around us is designed. No, really! But who gets to design for whom, and why does it have to be them? How do we relate to our designed life? How does our designed life affect how we relate to each other (for better or worse) and how do we change the design of our surroundings in response? Can design be activated as a practice of radical freedom and radical inclusion?
I am always in the pursuit of engaging with the design process—through my professional work here as well as in my approach to solving everyday problems—in a way that operates in the spirit of this exciting discourse.
