Reflexive – Self | Orientations

Co-produced with designer Gabriel A. Maher.

Orientation can be understood as a mutually constitutive process and a metastable relationship between space and the body. This workshop seeks to explore this double configuration both physically as well as abstractly by thinking-feeling physically as well as abstractly by thinking-feeling in terms of degrees and intensities about [self]perception ~ action ~ direction.

By physicalizing and enacting research along these coordinates, SD Masters students were offered a set of conceptual and methodological entry points that will enable them to inquire into the relationship of design with systems of power though processes of [self]orientation.
