The proposed series of lectures brings together design, community, philosophy, science/technology to investigate significant issues around sustainable future. Students learn how to put those pieces of information together and construct their own narrative and express it in the form of new wearables design.
Designers should become thinkers, at ease both with the making of concepts and the making of stuff. Thinkering: messing around in an open-ended way with raw material – whether tangible or intangible, concepts or 3D touch-points, ideas or prototypes – to design tools for speculation on the not-yet.
