I am very pleased to be participating in the excellent and intelligent programming of NC State’s 2010 Grad Symposium. The symposium is titled “Design, Community & The Rhetoric of Authenticity”. From their invitation:
We are currently engaged in investigating the notion of useful ambiguity in design practice. We are interested in a design process that requires both engineering and intuiting. We are intrigued by the utility of speculation. We believe that design inquiry that allows for provocation and improvisation can be academically rigorous and culturally relevant.
