Medium Design

Privileging declarations, right answers, proofs, and universals, culture is often banging away with the same blunt tools that are completely inadequate to address contemporary chemistries of power. On the flip side of these logics, Medium Design offers no dramatic manifestos where things are new or right. Instead it only rehearses a habit of mind that has been eclipsed. Even at a moment of digital ubiquity, Medium Design treats space as an information system and a broad, inclusive mixing chamber for many social, political, technical networks. And just as it inverts the typical focus on object over field, it may also invert some habitual approaches to problem solving, aesthetics and politics.

Quotes

    the designer might also operate like the parent with squabbling children. The parent does not try to parse the content of the argument but swiftly changes the disposition of the context.

    Lies are everywhere, animated and in color
    Madelon Kootwijkhas quoted2 years ago
    not free trade, but manipulated trade.
