Graphic Design Studio 1
The virtual and physical space of this studio is a safe platform for shared discussion, cooperation, and research. Each studio user is an autonomous individual; however, the mental space that we share and care for together is more than the sum of its parts. The studio users circulate freely, and their presence is not limited by the usual educational cycles. We try to understand design in its widest possible meaning. For us, a designer is any person who influences her surroundings by her professional activities. We perceive categories such as “speculative design” as contemporary constructs to be reflected on critically, not as cryptograms serving career development or intellectual dominance. As a result, we devote most of our time to raising awareness about these issues – be it on a collective or individual level. The teacher is the student is the assistant is the alumnus is the teacher is the studio. These are only temporary, and unendingly circulating roles among the individual studio users.
