Published on

The purpose of this slide deck is to explicate and visualise what design is and why it matters (in an infomodel), as we perceive how Kenya Hara discusses it in "Designing Design". We then took two examples from his exhibit, "Senseware" to reinforce our understanding of it in what he applies to his own work.

  4. 4. “Constantly pushing the eraforward isn’t always progress.”
  5. 5. “Design, which is accustomed toshowing its strength in ‘makingwhats fresh today look oldtomorrow’ as well as bringingnovel goods to a ... curiousaudience is further exacerbatingit contortions, in obedience tothe new technology.”
  6. 6. Kenya Hara assigned a different artificialsenseware material to each collaborator, inspiring a wide range of interesting showcases. “I wanted each artist to visualize the functionality of the product but not to worry about the difficulties of manufacturing the idea for mass consumption,” said Hara. “Inspiration was the function.”
