Pluriversal Design Methods and Critical Ontological Design

Pluriversality might help recognizing ways of designing and knowing that have been ignored by universal methods of design, such as vernacular and indigenous techniques. Looking at design methods through an ethical perspective, scrutinizing their intentions, and choosing alternatives beyond the universal may be called Critical Ontological Design. This philosophical idea can be summarized as such: the methods with which we design also design the kind of designers we become, so we better be critical about them. This talk features hybrid design methodologies developed as part of the designing for liberation research program.

This talk was recorded at the Disparate Cultures and World Viewpoints workgroup meeting from the Future of Design Education initiative.
