Slow Knowledge in Design Thinking, Pratt Institute

Dust, Dialogue, and Uncertainty: Slow Knowledge in Design Thinking and Practice is a collaboration by Pratt Institute and slowLab, a design research group from the Netherlands. The exhibition demonstrates how “slow knowledge” can bring holistic, reflective, and critical perspectives to design thinking and practice in support of more balanced and inclusive forms of living. Curated by Carolyn Strauss and Ana Paula Pais of slowLab, the exhibition features artists and designers who have applied slow design principles in their work and includes projects by Graduate Communications Design and Graduate Interior Design students.

This a fascinating introduction to the concept of slow design, and the artwork is definitely worth a look. The (free!) exhibition runs through Saturday, February 7 at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery at 144 W 14th St.
