Venue: Dipartimento di Lettere e Filosofia, room 118 - via Tommaso Gar, 14 Trento

Designing ourselves, the world, and reality
Seminar | Date: 14.06.2018
Venue: Department of Humanities, Room 421 - via Tomaso Gar, 14 Trento
 

This seminar is for designers, thinkers, and creatives that want to test their assumptions about themselves, the world, and reality in order to better understand the creative process and build better systems and services. It will be argued that most human beings live in two ‘worlds’ – one that is integrated and whole and another that is fragmented and confused. By examining the ways in which we ‘think’ about the landscape in which we live and the way we interact with both it and ourselves, we will explore the question of personal identity, how our past influences our creative capacity, and how our relationships with ourselves and each other ultimately affect the world we build and live within.

The seminar, organized by the Design Research Lab in Trento with the presence of, among others, professor Tom Bieling from the Design Research Lab in Berlin, will scientifically investigate the interpretations and controversies that define the concept of “design” within different historical and cultural contexts and, more specifically, in an evolutionary perspective. To this end, disciplines and fields of study like philosophy, biosemiotics, cultural theory, and media studies as well as schools of thought like positivism, rationalism, constructionism, and the new philosophy of science will be taken into consideration in order to understand and apply design research in its multiple forms.
