Dissertation project

Investigate the subject/content of your dissertation to develop a project to complete over the next 4 weeks.

My dissertation is about relational design. “Relational design is preoccupied with design’s effects, extending beyond the form of the design object and its attendant meanings and cultural symbolism. It is concerned with performance or use, not as the natural result of some intended functionality but rather in the realm of behavior and uncontrollable consequences. It embraces constraints and seeks systematic methodologies, as a way of countering the excessive subjectivity of most design decision-making. It explores more open-ended processes that value the experiential and the participatory and often blur the distinctions between production and consumption.” http://blogs.walkerart.org/design/2008/11/10/towards-relational-design/
