Designing ourselves, the world, and reality

Seminar | Date: 14.06.2018
Venue: Department of Humanities, Room 421 - via Tommaso Gar, 14 Trento

This seminar is for designers, thinkers, and creatives that want to test their assumptions about themselves, the world, and reality in order to better understand the creative process and build better systems and services. It will be argued that most human beings live in two ‘worlds’ – one that is integrated and whole and another that is fragmented and confused. By examining the ways in which we ‘think’ about the landscape in which we live and the way we interact with both it and ourselves, we will explore the question of personal identity, how our past influences our creative capacity, and how our relationships with ourselves and each other ultimately affect the world we build and live within.
