    • What else might design be – different interpretations of the world
    • Speculation (Speculative Design?)
    • Design as critique to critiquing design
    • Designers domesticate technologies

  • Analog game movement – write rulesets that reflect the vision of the architect. No, that didn’t work. Then creating the experience locally. Now a co-creation process that’s half product/half event? Practice being transmitted through objects. De-centering the designer, recentering the practice.
    • Douglas Wilson (Folk Games) No Autour.
  • Repair maintenance vs event. Events become objectified and bounded. It can be treated as a product.
