International Journal of Design on Alive. Active Adaptive: Experiential Knowledge

 

Thursday, September 26, 2019

A Special Issue of International Journal of Design on Alive. Active Adaptive: Experiential Knowledge and Emerging Materials has been published. 

Aims & Scope

The emergence of new materials and approaches offers opportunity for achieving new material experiences in design. But as materials acquire new agency and interactional possibilities (whether algorithmic, biological or chemical), how do we work with such alive, active and adaptive materials? And as materials acquire connectivity (whether digital or organic) and thus fluctuate within more fluid situations of use and needs, how do we understand the movements, temporalities and relationships of a material in relation to other materials? This calls for different skill sets, different way of understanding and mobilizing materials in design.

Vol. 13(2) August 2019
