FORMA NORMA // Inspirational presentations - Borka Moravcsik
How can the toolkit of service design help us turn our ideas into actions so that we can even respond to social issues? What is the Distributed Design approach and how can it help you design? What is it like to study in an interdisciplinary design course? Why does Borka want to use participatory tools in most of her designs, what are the advantages and disadvantages?
"In order to be able to think about the operation of our current systems by planning our future systems, design has many different methods and approaches for us.
Such trends can be critical design, speculative design, service design, or social design. I was also able to learn about these topics when, after a few years of professional experience in service design, I started as a scholarship recipient of the Distributed Design platform. I was a student of the Master in Design for Emergent Futures shared by the Barcelona Fablab and the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia degree.
I think that it is only really worthwhile to think about the future together
in the present if thinking can involve multiple industries and knowledge networks. That is why I would like to talk about how, as a designer, you can either use the toolbox of service design or the toolbox of different disciplines (e.g.: synthetic biology,
robotics, or design ethics), seeing how we can answer important social questions with different design interventions."
