The AIGA sponsored panel at the College Art Association in 2013 was all about participatory design. Following up on the publication of their fantastic book Participate: Designing with User Generated Content, published by Princeton Architectural Press, Zvezdana Stojmirovic and Helen Armstrong put together a panel of contributors from the book to discuss the implications of participatory design in professional practice and design education.
I was honored to be invited to present. My presentation focused on the act of editing and creating meaning out of the increasing quantity of user generated content. Here are some spreads from the Zine that they made for the conference. I referenced a project by one of my favorite design firms in Amsterdam, studio moniker, founded by Luna Maurer & Roel Wouters.
