Deadline for application: 1 October 2019

In this interdisciplinary course, students research societal issues through reflective experimentation with various techniques, tools and materials. We address the norms and values that inform existing product designs, branding strategies and technologies: who benefits from a given design? Who doesn’t? Could it be different? By asking these questions we aim to open a design space with room for difference and alternatives, on a conceptual level as well as product level. In this program, we practice falling in love with problems (not solutions), including “difference” and a variety of perspectives and experiences every step of the way.

The deadline of application is October 1, 2019. More information about the course schedule and assignments can be found on the Minor Makers Lab website
