through being in, not through being about

Yesterday, Sunday, in a peaceful community coworking gathering I looked around me to the diversity of creative (re)searchers. Yes, academia, re(searchers). Because everyone plugged into life, into their itch, into creating, into giving into the world, is (re)searching the beautiful mystery of what are we here to do in the first place. In this I was reminded of why I am doing this PhD project in the first place. It's good to be reminded of why; and probably not by academia, but by the world itself. It's good to be reminded of what are we designing for; through being in, not through being about. Any design research should be a "mesearch", too. It's about the individual being in the collective. About becoming the design. About re(searching) the unnoticeable in the interconnectedness of all things; and helping them notice each-other. Sustainability can only prevail if we design from within, not from outside.  Makespace Coworking provides pop-up creative spaces offering a change in daily routine and a kinder relationship to "work."
