Acuity Design: Inclusive Design - who are we arguing with?

Consumer Society is not about people

One of the key issues seems to be a failure to understand what the Consumer Society is about.

People confuse the idea of consumption - the creation of wants and needs to be filled with goods and services with the idea of consumers - people who are convinced to buy and consume.

The manufacturers and companies care about consumption not consumers.

It is the drive for them to build more factories, shops and offices to make and fill them with more stuff to be sold and consumed.

It is not about the people.

So, to use an example that turned up on Twitter that day, the jam jar is a terrible product for many people. Difficult to open, hard to identify for many.

It continues because it is an efficient way of storing and delivering jam for manufacturers and shops.

Crowdsourcing a cancer cure – Azure Magazine

Crowdsourcing a cancer cure – Azure Magazine | shubush design & wellbeing | Scoop.it
Salvatore Iaconesi, an Italian artist, hacker and TED Fellow, created a website to garner feedback on how to treat his illness, then mapped out the suggestions from 50,000 artists, doctors and fellow patients, and made them accessible to all.

 

To create a bridge between the technical language of his diagnosis and the language of humans, he hacked his medical records. That is, he digitized them into a downloadable open format – “transformed them into a very personal version of data” – and made them accessible on his La Cura website. He could read notes from an array of specialists and view his various brain scans. And so could everyone else.

Fascinated by ‘today’s Haste society’ as he calls it...

 

“Many aspects of modern life are too fast,” states Boutkan. “Because of this a lot of quality is lost. We seem to have set our course towards the horizon and only focus on getting there as fast as possible, without taking time to look at our surroundings.”

This fascination is what led to Intervals, a graduation project inspired by a passage from Joke J. Hermsen’s book Stil de Tijd (Stop the Time): ‘Only in times of rest, the interval between two actions, can we reflect upon ourselves.’ From this, a series of products was designed each with an endlessly repetitive yet conscious function.
