Design and Emotion: Out of Control

Published on: January 19th, 2012

The 8th International Conference on Design and Emotion, Out of Control, will examine how a world driven by uncertainty, crisis and chaos demands different responses from design (as a community, as a practice and as a process). Conference participants will consider how design acts as both a problem-solving activity and a springboard to a creative future. The emphasis is on the spectrum of human emotion experienced at the macro (socio-cultural), micro (personal), meta (philosophical), processural (methodological) and strategic levels.

The conference will be held at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, London, September 11-14, 2012.
