    My recent artistic research on the mainstream capitalistic South-Korean society brought me to a remote region in Jeollabukdo. A French and I are working as volunteers with the Korean organization IWO in this interesting community in the city of Sannae (산내).

    I wanted to put attention to this, because I believe the combination of traditional Buddhist education, co-organized farming by temple, community, and school is seriously an alternative to what I have seen sofar.

    The schools curriculum features classes like world peace, argricultural education, and Indian philosophy. It also teaches to life traditional Korean lifestyle and the gratetiude of monks. It has been very open-minded and therefore does freely inbed Christian and Atheist. Probably also Moslems, but I have not seen any around, yet.

  • Interview: Deborah Szebeko

    Community, Communication Design

    2072789979_28d3e03107_177_

    I have just listened to an interesting interview with Think Public's Deborah Szebeko, via Wodcast.

    Szebeko opens the discussion to talk through her definition of "Public Service Design". She continues to discuss Think Public's recent project "The Real Work Experience" - which I am ever more inspired by having (like many of those involved) left my BA degree in Graphic Design a bit lost at how to vehicle my work/skills/education toward positive change, rather than choosing a career path toward the more typical designer routes of advertising, for example. Szebeko further explains her motivation for starting Think Public and the Real Work Experience to have been driven from a frustration that designers have so little awareness as to where they can use their communication skills to design for greater good. Worth taking 12 mins to listen to the interview if you haven't come across Szebeko's work yet.

    Great TED talk from Norman Foster, Building on the Green Agenda.

    Recorded at the DLD Conference, Munich, Architect Norman Foster discusses his own work to show how computers can help architects design buildings that are green, beautiful and "basically pollution-free." He shares projects from throughout his career, from the pioneering roof-gardened Willis Building (1975) to the London Gherkin (2004). He also comments on two upcoming megaprojects: a pipe to bring water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, and the new Beijing airport.

    The DLD (Digital Life Design) Conference, in Munich, Germany, is hosted by publisher Hubert Burda and Israeli investor Yossi Vardi, covering digital innovation, media and design.

    In this months Doors of Perception Report, John Thackara offers some sample spreads of the Dott 07 Manual. The Manual explores two questions: "What could life in a sustainable region be like?" and, "how can design can help us get there?" Certainly worth a look.

  • Stop killing cyclists

    Really smart Transport For London ad.

    I’ve seen quite a few of these used as corporate training exercises. Wouldn’t it have been better if it had been filmed with cyclists rather than basketball players though, given the message?
