Experimenting with design: Playing with data derived from unusual locations

Laurene Vaughan, Andrew Morrison, Aisling Kelliher


The field of design research is in a rapid stage of its evolution. As it does so, the methods for undertaking research, and the contexts that these occur in are also evolving. Situated in the space between critical design and design fiction, participants in this workshop will explore new ways for experimenting within design research. The facilitators of the workshop come from three different aspects of design research, three markedly different locations and yet intersect in their interest in exploring and manifesting, new iterations of design research in practice. In this workshop, participants will explore methods for undertaking design experiments, methods as experiments, or experimenting with methods.
