Narrative in practice

by Melissa

I just got back from London where I was with Kelsey Snook to present our work and the behind the scenes thinking that drives our projects.

Our presentation was part of the Narrative in Practice : Design Symposium – a day of presentations and discussion on the role narrative plays in our everyday practice, how we use it as a tool in our work, and the impact of stories on the experiences we create.

The talk was also a chance to revist some of our Good Participation principles.

Festival of Ideas for the New City

by Melissa

Back in New York City to present at the Festival of Ideas for the New City organised by the New Museum.

The city was taken over by hundreds of initiatives that stimulated the creative community to imagine its future and explore ideas that will shape it. We presented as part of the ExpoTENtial project, where we are currently part of Mobicode, a research lab on mobility and the city.

The festival also showcased the first project to come out of one of ExpoTENtial ten labs: Hug Worms, an hommage to the place worms can play in waste management.
