The co-design research cluster at The School of Design joins internatinal exhibition: "Feral Experimental: New Design Thinking".
The symposium and workshops will highlight real world applications and the impact of design methods that are currently being developed in universities and research centres.

"Testing the limits of possibility, Feral Experimental brings together leading creative practitioners and researchers who explore the boundaries and intersections of experimental design, design thinking, data visualisation, and interaction design and service design"
- Curator: Katherine Moline

State-of-the-art design thinking
Feral Experimental sets out to explore state-of-the-art strategies for negotiating significant contemporary challenges from preparations for extreme wildfire, to energy conservation to the preservation of cultural heritage. Feral Experimental incorporates an exhibition, a symposium, workshops and a series of public lectures. The programme will highlight real world applications and the impact of design methods that are currently being developed in universities and research centres.

Experimental approaches to design thinking are engaged with user experiences via cultural probes and tangible interactions that are informed by design ethnography, design anthropology, and new combinations of technology. These approaches extend data collection methods that combine sensors, cameras, and GPS tracking to measure the affect of cycling, and technologies that emulate seeing through another's eyes.

The exhibition includes; Emotiv (San Francisco), Design Anthropology Innovation Model (Copenhagen), The Machine to be Another (Barcelona), Energy and Co-designing Communities (London), Indoor Climate Provotypes (Sønderborg), Community Centred Innovation (Melbourne), Flamp (Barcelona), Avena+ Test Bed (Stuttgart), Kindred Spirits (Amsterdam) and If We Never Meet Again (London). Discussion panels will be led by prominent design thinkers such as Cameron Tonkinwise, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh.


About Co-Design
Forskningsklyngen fra Danmark deltager bl.a. med DAIM-projektet. Co Design har med danske og internationale partnere på tværs af universiteter, bureauer og virksomheder tidligere udviklet en DesignAntropologisk InnovationsModel (DAIM). Den er udviklet gennem praktiske projekter og teoriarbejde, og budskabet er sammenfattet i bogen ”Rehearsing the Future”. Det handler om at øve sig på fremtiden ved at udvikle og afprøve prototyper i tæt samarbejde med brugere.

De involverede i DAIM er Thomas Binder (lektor, KD), Eva Brandt (lektor, KD), Joachim Halse (forskningsadjunkt, KD), Maria Foverskov (ph.d.-studerende, KD), Brendon Clark (post doc, SPIRE) & Signe Yndigegn (ph.d.-studerende, ITU).
