Y is for Yin & Yang

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This book extends the explorations of design thought and action for the first Does Design Care...? workshop at Imagination, Lancaster University in September 2017 that investigated different ways to conceptualise, provoke, contest and disrupt care. This illustrated A to Z for the Design of Care is intended to help guide design out of the intractable and entangled challenges we face with care and set it on the path to reconcile the contradictory needs to abstract the gesture of care (its theories) while it grounds the bodiliness of that same gesture (its applications). * Each entry in this A to Z was written and illustrated by its author during the Does Design care [2]...? workshop in Chiba University, Japan. Only a few colours of paper, scissors and glue could be used to produce the illustrations. Coyle's contribution is titled Y is for Yin & Yang and discusses the dark side of design in contemporary society. These reflections call upon design and designers to be vigilant considering the hidden realities indicative of comsumerised produce.
