What happens when you collide all Aalto’s new design MA-students with wicked problems?

Demos Helsinki was given a unique opportunity to craft and run the intensive introductory course of new design post-grads at Aalto-university. Come and see what we made at the Mediakeskus Lume / Aalto on 02 September 13:00 – 15:00. We promise you nothing less than a manifesto of design in the age of wicked problems.

You know the scene in Matrix where the bald kid tells Leo that to be able to bend to spoon you have to realise the truth. “There is no spoon”? We took this as our metaphore for thinking about design, since the endpoint of design is not the object but the use of the object. Here’s the brief for what you will see tomorrow. Enjoy!
