Impact Salon - Allan Chochinov: Playing with Fire

Playing with Fire: Arguing for the Imperative of Transgressive, Near-Illegitimate Design

The power of design to create meaningful change is on its way to matching the power of design to move markets. But what about the areas where design might fear to tread, or “has no business” inserting itself? Through over a dozen examples—from designing for assisted suicide or teaching children criminal arts, to providing wayfinding to urban violence or creating consumer electronics for recording prison abuse—this lecture will look at design at the margins, highlighting projects that are daring, maybe objectionable, perhaps even “illegitimate,” in order to find out what might be just inside, or just outside, the reasonable limits of design practice and education.

 A Vibrant Cities event

Join us Wednesday, November 30th, 5pm, to spend an hour with  Daylight Design founder Sven Newman. Sven will share stories of Interaction design in Impact. They are part of a growing trend to include work of clear social benefit in their portfolio of engagement. They are also part of a growing trend to include a systems thinking perspective in their approach to design.  

This salon will be hosted by CCA senior lecturer Christina Tran. Christina's work is cataloged on her website SoDelightful and up until Summer Christina was working with Sven at his consultancy Daylight Design.

This is the third IxD Impact Salon of the year.  Impact Salon is a series about people using design to create Social impact, once a month, Wednesdays 5-6pm. We think of this as a conversation, we invite the guest to share stories and the audience to ask questions about the work.

  • Carolina 101 - Corner room - CCA SF Campus (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us Nov 4th at 2pm for a review and feedback session - science faire style - to help shape and direct the amazing IxD seniors with their thesis work!  

The BFA IxD seniors have been working hard for three+ years to build their craft skills and apply them in their Senior Thesis - now they would like your help.  Their challenge is to consider Citizenship & Consumership within a Vibrant City and uncover a complex social challenge at the intersection of "important to me" and "Important to the world."  Some examples of emerging are: diabetes, unconscious bias, native american community, meaningful IOT, healthy communities, sharing economy, third culture, college transitions and many more still taking shapes

Students will present at 2pm quickly, followed by stations where they will showcase their challenge and directional prototypes. They are looking for directional feedback from you, our guest reviewers.
