Accountability

If you work from the inside out, who holds you accountable for doing the right thing?

‘Works that work’ magazine about (design) projects that have made an impact. The magazine looks worldwide to find inspiring projects that set examples for others. Did you know Rwanda was the first country to ban plastic bags completely? I mean, Holland was really proud to do so last year, but now I know we were just following! #wtw7
And have you ever heard of the story of Captain Gupta who lets Indian schoolchildren experience a real plane flight and emergency landings in an abandoned plane? #wtw3 

I can highly recommend this magazine, in depth stories that are surprising and come from all corners of the world. Plus, every issue has a relevant theme. This magazine makes me want to DO things.

Strange Tales VI – lost my name

Three talks from RCA teachers about the intersection of science and art. Hosted by the London based company ‘Lost My Name’, they make children books and host this event: Strange Tales, to get inspired by peoples stories. I am not sure what I will do with the information that was shared. But I will share two quotes with you. First a quote by Kevin Walker: “we direct peoples attention through design by making design”. This quote comes from the article ‘the world is a computer’. Charlotte Jarvis’ last statement I’d like to share as well: “science states meaning; art expressing them” she has deformed this quote into: “science expressing meanings by making it operates as experience.” 

It got me thinking about how we use our knowledge. Am I right to say that designers always translate their knowledge into an experience?
