Design Anthropology

In 2016, Bureau Europa presented 'Design Anthropology – Surveying the Design Discipline', a symposium investigating the evolution of the design discipline. The symposium convened interdisciplinary professionals to discuss the underlying myths within design, deconstruct its emerging signs, and examine how technology influences the future landscape of design.

The Symposium was part of the exhibition The Next Big Thing is Not a Thing and was partly derived from the research and publication Design Anthropology by Dr Yana Milev.

The development of the visual identity for this exhibition began by 3D scanning the human body. By stacking the multiple scans, visions are overlaid in order to evoke and explore the body as an information rich landscape. Some kind of technological afterthought and a site that explores the central question of human and technological agency: who is watching whom?

Collaboration with Niels Schrader, Roel Backaert, Tycho Hupperets and Laura Dilettante
