Otto von Busch - Featured Speaker at the ACC Conference in Omaha - October 2016

"Present Tense" featured speaker #OttoVonBusch has a question to get your gears turning for #ACCpt16. Thoughts?

Much time and effort have been spent over the years to define what craft really is, to not much avail. Perhaps it is better to discuss what craft can do. Can craft challenge, critique, manipulate? And can it also inquire, empower, and liberate?

Otto von Busch is Associate Professor of  Integrated Design at Parsons School of Design. In his research and practice he explores how design and craft can be reverse-engineered, hacked, and shared among many participants as a form of civic engagement. Many of his projects prototype how design can mobilize community capabilities through collaborative craft and social activism in the support of social sustainability, peace, and ultimately justice.
