There are many reasons to visit Big Bang Data, an exhibition on how data is transforming our world currently on at the Somerset House, but at least one of them is Goldsmiths related: work from the Interaction Research Studio is featured as part of the show.
It is an opportunity to present work and discuss the diverse aspects of what it means to do a practice-based PhD in Design. In connection to the DRS conference, this one day event will explore what the future holds for design research and how this future is being enacted through practice-based PhD design projects right now.
Some questions we seek to explore are:
How do current PhDs in Design, frame and address the societal problems that face us?
In what ways are practice-based PhDs influencing ideas about Design and working as a designer?
How does current practice-based design research contribute to re-shaping our lives in more responsible, meaningful, and open ways?
We are very excited to announce the next Public Lecture as part of the PhD By Design conference ‘Researching across difference’ being held in the Department of Design at Goldsmiths on the 5th and 6th of November 2015. The conference is an opportunity to present work and discuss the diverse aspects of what it means to do a practice-based PhD in Design.
This year, the public lecture is on the evening of Thursday the 5th November and will involve leading design researchers Professor Doina Petrescu and Professor Roberto Feo.
The full programme of PhD by Design can now be read online.
