2020 IS A STEEP LEARNING CURVE. STEEP ENOUGH TO MAKE US STOP, TAKE A BREATH AND REENGINEER OUR OWN IMAGINATION. IDAN GRADY (UNDEFINED) LOOKS AT HOW FLUID PLURALISM CAN HELP US TO ADAPT IN A WORLD WHERE THE RATE OF CHANGE SEEMS TO SPEED UP, UNABATED.
COVID-19 urges humanity to rethink and adapt the way we design. Black Lives Matter not only compels us to rethink design, but also who is involved in the process and how this positively impacts inclusive outcomes.
In the ‘Era of Fluid Pluralism’ talk series, we start a mutual journey exploring a future built on pluralism to find technological solutions to our biggest societal challenges.
Fluid pluralism acknowledges and recognises the value of being different in our continuously evolving universe. Pluralism considers the present, while fluidity looks to tomorrow. Our evolution doesn’t stop today, and we should become comfortable with expression – through language, ideas and feelings – that keeps our fluid environment in mind.
In this podcast, we’ll explore the idea of ‘inherent flexibility’ in a pluralistic design approach. By acknowledging interactions in a multicultural society, we question how to embrace more voices in design thinking to reflect a true and valuable experience, helping to build a future that better balances nature with technology and human life.
The ‘Era of Pluralism’ will be available online soon.
WE CANNOT SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS WITH THE SAME THINKING WE USED WHEN WE CREATED THEM
