 EN: Are we overdesigning the world?

More and more, design is regarded as a discipline that doesn't attempt to substantially change the world we live in, but just make the flaws in it look nicer.

I am however interested in how design practices can deal with more complex issues, if not solving them, at least raising a discussion of how they should be dealt with. I always sensed a lack of debate in how designers shape the world they live in, a mix of carefreeness, self-indulgence, endogamy and mere irresponsibility. Thus maybe it is time to dedesign, to set back and question our conventions and priorities, to remember that we are designing mainly for non-designers, that many aspects of our everyday life are better left undesigned. I want to escape the limitations of a rigid specialization and develop transdisciplinary and transmedia projects. I am a
n architect pretending to be a graphic designer pretending to be a video-editor and pretending to make a living out of it.

And posting some of his work so far in the web.

If you have a project that could fit in this guidelines, or any comments, please share.

DE: Überentwerfen wir die Welt?

Das Ziel von dedesign ist, die realen Bedürfnisse und Grenzen der Design-Praxis zu erforschen. Ein Design, das für und von den 'nicht-designers' gemacht ist. Ein Architekt, der ein Grafiker zu sein behauptet, der ein Video-Editor zu sein behauptet, der seinen Lebensunterhalt damit zu verdienen behauptet.

Und er stellt seine bisherige Projekte ins Netz.

Wenn Du ein solches Projekt im Kopf hast, oder noch eine Meinung, bitte nimm Kontakt mit mir auf.

ES: ¿Estamos sobrediseñando el mundo?

El objetivo de dedesign es explorar las necesidades y limitaciones reales de la praxis del diseño, si es que las hay. Un diseño hecho por y para los 'no diseñadores'. Un arquitecto que pretende ser un diseñador gráfico que pretende ser un montador de video que pretende vivir de ello en Berlin.

Y que cuelga sus trabajos hasta ahora en la web.

Si tienes proyectos que puedan encajar en estas premisas, o si tienes comentarios, por favor ponte en contacto.

representing utopia


The project attempts to represent the spaces of Thomas MORE’s ‘Utopia’. Each the four pannels represents a different scale: the country (the island), the city, the street and the human scale.
The island of Utopia is here represented with the imagery of the 20th century modernism,deliberately mixing different representation techniques in oder to create a temporally
confuse setting. This might also refer to the idea of the time-travel, a device used as a excuse to think about utopias throughout time. There is a feeling of despair, a certain sense of lost future evoked by the images. It reminds us that built utopias tend to enter the realm of the dystopian.
