Critical and Future Concepts

Estudos Contemporâneos em Design
Docente: Vitor Almeida

Exercício: Plataforma Galexica

Pretende-se que os alunos nas unidades curriculares de Estudos Contemporâneos em Design e Laboratório dos Novos Media I desenvolvam uma plataforma online de conteúdos académicos relacionados com o universo do design crítico. Tomou-se como ponto de partida o mapeamento atomizado das palavras-chave que integram o manifesto A/B, de Anthony Dunne e Fiona Raby. Em abstracto, todas as palavras se constituem como um vasto campo de referências textuais, imagéticas, políticas, em suma, culturais, acessíveis através da hipertextualidade da primeira janela contextual de significação conceptual (S). A(s) palavra(s) de investigação, a retirar do manifesto A/B, de acordo com os interesses académicos do aluno, corresponde(m), assim, a inclinações temáticas em construção no mestrado de design de comunicação e novos media com o intuito de servirem a investigação futura. Espera-se que a escolha desencadeie uma pesquisa profícua sobre a natureza crítica do design e da sua vestente especulativa. A investigação deverá ser pautada por uma recolha fina de referências e pelo diálogo que cada aluno deve procurar estabelecer com outros colegas cujas palavras possam estar na mesma esteira conceptual. Esta interacção deve ser estimulada para que todos possam colaborar uns com os outros, num sistema mutualista onde todos dependem de todos para a qualificação da plataforma.
