Bright Minds, Beautiful Ideas

"...is a vital book that gives a sparkling singular perspective of roles, values and functions of designers and design" "The world of Design is in confusion (...) Distinctions between separate disciplines are becoming increasingly blurred (...) time for a rethink on the role of designer and the meaning of design (...) what is contemporary design? They question everything and are capable of coupling fantasy, playfulness and investigation with vision. They link culture to economy (...) curiosity and openness with social commitment and action." This book was initiated on the occasion of ExperimentaDesign 2003 [EXD03] and refers to the workshop "Beyond Consumption: Bright Minds Beautiful Ideas" in wich I took part. I will update this post soon with a link for the work developed and some more information about the subject.
