Designing to Challenge Reality — A Conceptual Toolkit - OD6307

Share this page

Design is a tool to challenge reality. In design, it doesn’t matter what you, or anyone else, thinks is possible — it’s what you can make possible in the moment that counts. Join designer Kelli Anderson to discover how our unconscious biases can prevent us from seeing the potential hiding in plain sight in a world of limitless wonder and possibility. Even the most ubiquitous, low-tech materials can reveal new, amazing facets of our reality. We must simply be willing to “misuse” them.

As Kelli presents concepts and inspiration to push the boundaries of your work and your world, you’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize your own hidden biases and preconceived notions, so you can more clearly see possibilities others might miss
  • Tunnel into a topic, a generative question, a material, or a project
  • Find creative opportunity in the “misuse” of tools and technology
