Open talk: Engaging organisations through provocative concepts 

janet_kelly_udstillingCODE are happy to invite you to an open talk with Janet Kelly, lecturer in Product Design and Design Innovation at Glasgow School of Art. Tuesday November 1st from 9.15 – 10.00 at KADK (ROOM 90. 1. 25).

Abstract: Engaging formats are required to communicate designerly understandings  to a broader audience within organisations. This talk will present a case where the format of an exhibition, consisting of a collection of open-ended provocative design concepts, was used to engage two medical device manufactures in the results of field studies that involved the pre-users of their devices.  The talk will elaborate on how the exhibition as a whole, rather than presenting ultimate solutions, mapped out a rich and complex landscape for design and discuss what can be achieved through open-ended provocation in this kind of format.

Bio: Janet is a Lecturer in Product Design and Design Innovation at the Glasgow school of Art. She completed an Industrial PhD with the SPIRE centre for participatory innovation working on a project entitled ‘Innovating with the Pre-Users of Medical Devices’ which involved exploring design and innovation methods with the potential users of medical devices, in collaboration with medical device manufacturers Novo Nordisk AS and Oticon AS, working with another PhD student from an Anthropological background.
