“Does Design Care” by Cherry-Ann Davis and Nina Paim in A Line Which Forms A Volume #5!

A Line Which Forms A Volume #5 explores how the act of leaning on, with, and into a research topic can be regarded as a form of care for the complexities of contemporary society. It approaches the idea of leaning from a particular perspective: the encounter between care and radical transparency in design research. Alongside Bryony Quinn, Intersections of Care, Ramon Tejada, and the participants of the MA Graphic Media Design course at London College of Communication, U.K. Futuress was delighted to contribute to this publication! Does Design Care? was first published in Alter-Care, the 2021 Porto Design Biennale journal, then republished online on our Futuress website, and now it has been reprinted in the 5th issue of ALWFAV! In the text, Cherry-Ann Davis and Nina Paim examine the role of the term “care” in the design field and why, under its benign banner, design sometimes inflicts more harm to the communities it wishes to elevate.
