Design has gone far beyond a disciple. It has become a system, a principle, an ideaology, and a philosophy.
Designism is the practice and principle of thinking that involves complex optimisation between emotion and intelligence, between communication and meaning, between science and art, between what can be and what should be, between body and spirit, between known and unknowable.
Design is the new way of thinking in the iminent machine age where mundane decisions and actions would be taken over by AI and other technologies far superior then humans at understanding and analysing data and creating accurate extrapolations. The only human faculty that can be put to use in such a scenario is the emotional, intuitive way that a Designist would use to define what, how and why our lives should be.
Are you a Designist?
The 12th Pune Design Festival will seek to explore the Doctrine of Designism through the thoughts and works of varied Designists. See you there!
