Control (Annotated)

This slideshow by Khoi Vinh of was compiled for the AIGA National Design Conference in Denver, Colordao, in October 2007, but is still totally relevant to anyone interested in web design and new media.

The basic jist concerns the advent of conversation as a new element of design, and the whole thing is quite beautifully presented, highlighting some excellent examples of quality new media and web design along the way.

This article by William McDonough reaffirms our need to begin a new conversation about these issue, or as he put in the 11th Hour movie, to redesign design itself.

In 2008 Element skateboards launched their Power to the Planet campaign. This initiative is a collaboration of skateboarders, artists, designers, musicians and extended family members with the mission to creatively inspire and raise environmental awareness. The power in this project is the community driven aspect. This isn’t a fight we want to take on alone.

Check out their new bamboo line of skateboards and clothing.

Rotor is an interdisciplinary collective from Brussels that has created a platform to deal with the complex theme of the re-use of industrial waste and its social, economic, and ecological aspects. It explores the current production processes, materials, and decisions that lead to the selection of what is useful and what is not. The production of goods not only represents a transformation of raw materials but also asks the question: what is useful and what constitutes surplus? In the project Rotor is creating especially for the Ursula Blickle Foundation the collective concentrates on the specific instances, places, and circumstances in which waste is produced or in which something is considered a surplus. Rotor’s installation revolves around a series of waste products, which have resulted from different production processes and from different companies. The project was preceded by a long research period involving companies from the Kraichtal region as well as international manufacturers. The installation will not only focus on the documentation of each production and material context, but it will also present the actual material that usually remains invisible at disposal.
