 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.

ecatepec: media maps

Part of the research carried by the Urban Asymmetries group in Ecatepec, Mexico City as part of the graduation project was a series of interviews and video shots of the conditions present in the site. This media showed as a perfect tool to show the views and standpoints of the different players, and the conflicts that were generated.
Five clips of about five minutes each have been created and used for several presentations (including the graduation). There is a project to create a 30 min documentary about the work carried out by the Urban Asymmetries group in Ecatepec.

The architectural and urban projects were published in the book Urban Asymmetries. Studies and Projects on Neoliberal Urbanization”, Ed. Tahl Kaminer, Miguel Robles-Dúran, Heidi Sohn, 010 Publishers, Rotterdam, 2011.

homopatik

image

Promotional videos for the homopatik party in about:blank, Berlin. Each of the parties has a different topic and the videos try to explain and develop them. Videos posted and linked on the web are seen as a cheap and sustainable alternative to printing flyers, a kind of flyer 2.0.

Some of these videos were part of the reSource event 001: Trial Crack - Queer Shifts panel, organized by transmediale, Berlin (DE).

keyword: space

Video piece trying to map a given space according to the three notions of space given by David Harvey in his text “Space as a keyword”. Under the supervision of Tahl Kaminer (TU Delft).

Absolute space is fixed and we record or plan events within its frame. This is the space of Newton and Descartes (…). Space is relative in a double sense: that there are multiple geometries from which to choose and that the spatial frame depends crucially upon what it is being relativized and by whom. (…) It is impossible to understand space independent from time under this formulation and this mandates an important shift of language from space and time to space-time or space-temporality. The relational notion of space-time implies the idea of internal relations; external influences get internalized in specific processes or things through time (…). In a way, relational conceptions of space-time brings us to the point where mathematics, poetry and music converge if not merge.” [1]
