This week i had another great supervisory meeting. Having my first poster accepted for a conference, we discussed the best way to present Joana’s poster for Cumulus conference and decided upon a more “interactive” poster through applying the understanding of the ‘expanded field of communication design’, and mechanisms for the viewers to take part in reflecting upon the research questions. I have now established that my practice focuses on the expanded field of communication design and how it builds communities of interest around sustainability issues through design artifacts. What is the relationship between my definition of communication design in relation to critical design? Critical design does not necessarily have a function beyond challenging the hegemony or proposing better futures.
More to come on this subject soon.
