Anette What's up Workshops

  1. Bisociating diversities for socially responsive design

    Central St. Martins, London 11 September 2012.

    To kick start the Design & Emotion conference we did a three-­hour workshop introducing a method called ‘bisociating diversities’ that aims to provide a focused framework for ideation and to tease out fresh and possibly surprising new concepts. This playful design method has evolved out of our ongoing research into ‘metadesign’ (Jones and Lundebye, 2012). We had participants from industry and academia co-design some interesting concepts for socially responsive design, such as “happifying communities-on-the-go.”

  2. Metadesign at the Design & Emotion conference

    Central St. Martins School of Art & Design, London 11-14. September 2012

    Anette and Hannah Jones are presenting a paper and a workshop at the 8th International Conference on Design & Emotion, this year hosted at Central St. Martins College of Arts and Design in London. The article presents the findings from the first phase of an SRVD project carried out in November 2011 with the MA Design students at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO). The project, entitled ‘Metadesigning Spaces of Engagement and Exchange’ set about ‘bisociating diversities’ within the community and co-designing ‘seeds’ to revitalize a multi-cultural shopping and cultural centre in Veitvet, Oslo.


  3. Article in connecting the dots magazine # 5

    Connecting the Dots, London 20-23. September 2012

    What happens when designers shift their focus from satisfying consumer desires, to facilitating new social possibilities? Anette, together with Hannah Jones, has  co-written an article that explores the notion of Socially Responsive Design. They interview six design experts from their network to discover how they define Socially Responsive Design, what it feels like to be involved in this practice; and how it’s likely to impact on design in the future. The Dutch magazine connecting the dots will be out in September for the London Design Festival (14 – 23 September 2012). Read it here
