1. Mathilda Teaching What's up Workshops : Mapping Design – across all times and everything

    Workshop, Department of Design, Goldsmiths, University of London, 6 February 2013

    Mathilda facilitated a workshop with the BA Design first year students, as part of their contextual course Ecology and Design. In the workshop we explored how objects of design are influenced by, and influence difference aspects of society and over time  – a really big scale outlook on design, based in the materiality of and our relationships with everyday objects. We used Stewart Brand’s model of civilization, with six layers from the very slow, ‘nature’, through ‘culture’, ‘governance’, ‘infrastructure’, ‘commerce’ to the very fast, ‘fashion’ as a starting point, adding a continuum from ‘positive’ to ‘negative’ impact. We plotted the model on the floor of the big workshop space, placing objects we had brought in where we thought they best fit. Then we used string to explore links between different objects and layers. This was a process of negotiation and provoked challenging discussions. Did the clock origin from culture or governance? What is its contribution to our lifestyles today? And what about sneakers?

    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

    Anette delivered a workshop and talk for the seminar series: Methods & Processes for all the design students across the Master programmes at Goldsmiths. Together with Hannah Jones, programme leader for MA Design Futures at Goldsmiths the students got to explore the life cycle of a selection of everyday objects in a tactile and qualitative way as well as get an overview of how sustainability informs new visions, strategies and frameworks for design. This sparked some interesting debates on some of the paradoxes and contradictions many products such as: a Patagonia fleece jacket, a wooden stapler or a Guerlain powder refill container may pose, and what more it offered opportunities to rethink about use and adequate lifespan of products.

    On the 31st March we had a scrumptious dinner celebrating the arrival of spring and sprouts. The event was designed by DesignMarketo at the Barbican Center where they recently also opened a pop-up shop within the shop. A few new food experiences were on the menu such as the Volcano bread by Olivia Decaris and the edible saucers In between by Hina Thibaud served with coffee and tea, alongside fresh and light dishes. The Refurbished Cutlery (mismatched rubber coated cutlery) by Use Dev Org was a good reminder of how we can give new life to otherwise outmoded utensils.

    Romsås, Oslo, 12-16 October, 2009

    This week-long Socially Responsive Design (SRVD) project with the first year MA Design students at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, used design research and metadesign tools to initiate a research project on potential meeting-spaces for local inhabitants at Romsås in Oslo. Through a series of presentations and workshops we challenged the students to question their assumptions on diversity and to develop their roles as designers beyond their traditional expertise.

    Jennifer Leonard who works for IDEO gave an inspirational talk on design, change and sustainability at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm during the one-week college-wide induction to ‘Design and Sustainability’ led by Mathilda and Anette. We really enjoyed Jennifer’s talk and respect her work as co-author of the book Massive Change together with Bruce Mau.

    Every year the current students on the MA Design Futures at Goldsmiths, University of London, present their developing ideas for their dissertations to an audience of professionals. These presentations help them direct their thinking towards their potential readers. This year’s group was diverse in terms of ethnicity and interests and the subjects ranged from Office Design in Iran, to Sustainable Storytelling. One really interesting project was by Ivan Nascimento’s, who works as a graphic designer for the charity Cafod. His research highlights an interesting shift in visual communication where corporations and NGO’s are competing for attention and becoming uncannily similar. This links up to our recent findings in Swedish media.(link)

    We recently spent a day out in their woods with friends and a special guest Singgih S Kartono, a designer, from Indonesia who designs and makes the famous Magno – ‘wooden radios’ for which he has won many acclaimed awards. Singghih is an inspiration to us as he has created a business model for his products that takes into consideration local, social, environmental and aesthetic needs. For more info see here

    Turin, Italy. 10-12 July, 2008. Changing the Change.

    The conference Changing the Change brought together designers and researchers working in the field of sustainability from all over the world. A strong theme was the role of design and the designers – pointing to extended quality criteria, transdisciplinary teamwork, and a design that doesn’t necessitate material outcomes. Of particular interest was how designers can use their creative and visual skills in communicating sustainable visions.

    Mathilda participated with Hannah Jones, a colleague at Goldsmiths and the Metadesign research project, contributing with a paper. Metadesign tools – Designing the seeds for shared processes of change explores a series of approaches and tools that can facilitate collaboration across design disciplines and beyond.
