Dialogue Pathways with Otherness in Twenty First Century Museum
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Conference contribution › Scientific
Also whereas in science our epistemology (and questioning) assumes a closed ontology, in design we can easily deal with the notion of an ontology that is ‘composable’. In the second instance knowledge is regarded not as an object that is part of a closed set but rather as a relational condition that changes through out the iterations of the design research process.
My perspective is further informed by the notion of Media Design as one whose primary objective is communication not necessarily as ‘broadcasting’ but rather involving an exchange of knowledge created through participation (sharing of the object of activity) and reification (a concretizing of the design idea beyond reception) within a diversity of communities. What opportunities exist for design from this (hopefully ecological) and multimodal perspective, particularly involving heritage?
My discussion in the current essay proceeds by describing the Openness and Indeterminacy and the Non-linear and Epigenetic aspects of design as relational parameters that can be used when working with heritage in the museum.
My concluding remarks about propose possible Dialogues pathways with Otherness in Twenty First Century Museum.
