System D Academy
With Melle Smets (of Set Up Shop), we are organizing System D Academy. One of its manifestations is a two year Master Research Editorial Studio on System D at the Sandberg Institute starting October 2014. The studio will explore informal and self-organizing systems. By learning from System D (Debroulliard), we will seek alternatives to the formalized systems we are currently locked into by exploring the informal undercurrent in formalized countries as well as the apparent, highly dynamic System D found around the world. Learning from System D we will seek to intersect and exchange knowledge with a variety of communities and places where people have created their own informal systems. We develop projects to visualize the strength of the informal and its implications for future models of living.
