I am currently developing work that explores the ways in which design can be understood as a social process of commoning.
It is currently widely proclaimed, that from within the lacuna offered by the current social and political moment, potentialities for instating new ways of organising our lives are given impetus. This in-and-of itself surfaces a variety of questions and tensions around the ways in which we conceive of design as radical thought and practice. This is observable through considering the ways in which design conceptualises infrastructuring to build relationality temporally, while present conditions call for a certain immediacy and responsiveness that surfaces new viewpoints. These dilemmas raise questions about the types of changes that we envision the crisis providing and how design can be understood in the contexts of crises response.
More to come.
