This year we started the course with an intensive design session with the studio DOES WORK. The initial talk was open to teachers and students, and addressed topics such as surveillance, materiality, ecology, culture and urgency.
The subsequent workshop was for students only. In order to make the session run smoothly, there were only 48 places available, which were filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Saül Baeza is the person behind DOES WORK and professor at one of the leading design schools in Europe (Elisava), visiting professor at Central Saint Martins and London College of Communication (UAL), RMIT UNiversity Melbourne, Sónar+D, Victoria and Albert Museum, and others. He is working on his doctoral thesis at Eindhoven University of Technology.
DOES is an agency design, research and consultancy that explores the potential of digital functionalities and identities at different scales and media. Formed by a team of designers and researchers, they work in the ever-changing material world in which our bodies constantly interact. They combine design, research, academic, curatorial and editorial work to develop concepts that lie at the intersection between material and technology, body and mind.
They have worked with Unicef, Creative Europe (ECEA), Adidas, Ogilvy, Jendu, LaCaixa, MADE (Material Designers), Domestic Data Streamers (joint exhibition), MIRA Digital Arts Festival, Lobster Thereming Record LAbel, Eurecat Technology Centre and Materfad Materials Centre.
