Design For Agency
Exhibition, MAK Forum, Vienna, Austria.
From drones to humanoid robots, from social media sites to search engines, we now live amongst increasingly sophisticated organs, constantly sensing, collecting, and deciphering every aspect of our lives. As so ware and systems come to appear increasingly autonomous, what is often not visible is the motivation of their creators and the mechanisms and rules governing the behaviours of the ‘machines’ themselves.
The students from the Industrial Design department at the University of Applied Arts Vienna are presenting mediations, designs, tactics, and tools that provoke and inspire us to consider the shifting forms of human agency in our fast-changing world.
