This is a Critical Design Research blog focusing on research methodology and process documentation. Through criticality in design and research, artists and designers are able to create more meaningful designs that transforms the consciousness of consumers from a conditioned response to active participation.
This blog takes you through my research for a project in my Integrated Design Studio II class. The project requires us to find a different set of data and expectations and then propose an object with inherent criticality that produces provoking, tactile, and oppositional results. We will be guided or inspired by research concerning our objects category, history, deconstruction, and physical experiments and studies. In the end, we will generate ideation and iterations of our designed object and produce the final product.
This blog is a result of a project done (Sophomore year, second semester, 2012) at the Otis College of Art and Design
