Embracing Error and Process
DESIGN THAT APPLAUDS
OWNERSHIP AND INDIVIDUALITY
Flawed Human Design embraces the endless possibility of error and uncertainty within a perfected space.
- Anastasiia Raina, "What Does 'Posthuman Design' Actually Mean?"
"Human design with all of its imperfections and flaws is an important distinguishing component in the age of technology, and it needs to be made visible in the design work that we produce. Faced with machines that outperform humans in a variety of tasks, we are forced to re-examine the roles and design methods for the Posthuman epoch and develop radically human creative approaches to pave the way for formal experimentation in the age of the algorithm."
You could say where Anastasiia leans toward humans understanding nonhumans through design, I use my views on flawed human design to help humans understand ourselves through design, and embrace what we find.
