CREATE OUT LOUD #3: RESEARCH & SCIENCE: DESIGNERS AS LAPDOGS FOR SCIENTISTS?
20TH OCTOBER @ 17.30 – 19.30HRS
(DUTCH DESIGN WEEK 2015)
MU, STRIJP S, TORENALLEE 40-06, EINDHOVEN
On 20th October, during Dutch Design Week 2015, Mike will feature in the panel discussion: Create Out Loud #3: Research & Science: Designers As Lapdogs for Scientists? Below is the official outline of the event:
Design and science know how to find each other more and more. The innovative and exploratory spirit of the designer seems to combine well with the more analytical approach of science. But how can designers call themselves real researchers? Are they taken seriously and do the developed design products and prototypes count, as well as academic papers as interesting bearers of knowledge? How do we prevent designers being the lapdogs of scientists? How do we ensure that the looking for solutions mentality of designers, doesn’t scare of scientists? In short, how do we prevent mediocre design and halfhearted science? MU’s space, centrally located at Srijp-S, will be the stage for a fresh design talkshow at the end of every Dutch Design Week-day. Everything concerning design could be point of discussion, it will be entertaining for a broad audience as well as the more developed designlover.
With Koert van Mensvoort (Ambassador of DDW15, Next Nature NETWORK and Research Fellow TU/e), Bas Raijmakers (CRISP & Readership Design Academy Eindhoven), Rob Zwijnenberg (Leiden University), Mike Thompson (Thought Collider, FATBERG & CRISP), and Isaac Monté (Winner BAD AWARD 2015).
