Keynote “Uncertainty/Complexity”
Being invited to talk about complexity and uncertainty in design, this will be a somewhat speculative story about the two notions, and how they might be related as design evolves towards what often seems to be increasing amounts of both. In particular, I would like to discuss why it seems we, as educators and researchers in these forms of higher education, can take less and less for granted in design even as we learn more and more about designing.

Johan Redström is Professor in Design at Umeå Institute of Design. Working at the intersections, and interactions, between research through design and design philosophy, recent interests tend to involve emerging technologies, posthumanist perspectives and new design practice.
