Critical issues in design 2A (6 points)
Synopsis: Product designs from local and international manufacturers are analysed through advertising and imaginary narratives of their use. The looks and the ecological and the ethical dimensions of such objects are discussed in a critical spirit. Rather than cultivate strict objectivity and disinterested inquiry, the subject encourages the design critic to take up an 'interested' position which is necessary for the creation of visionary designs of consumer goods.
