Shaping Voices | A Shapeshifters Anthology
Hard back book featuring Jon Wozencroft's 'Heart and Soul'
148pp full colour
Shaping Voices is distributed by Oogachtend NV
Today, design exists in multiple contexts and encompasses a broad range of disciplines, practices, technologies and forms. Our information society is constantly pushing and redefi ning the visual landscape, opening the field for new developments and ideas. Throughout the book, the different authors present arguments and ideas to broaden the readers’ perspective, allowing them to go beyond the complexity of the current design debate. Shaping Voices aims to discuss the questions (and possible answers) concerning the development of new concepts for re-evaluating contemporary design practice and theory. The book contains the ideas and reflections of a variety of authors, ranging from a selection of designers and artists who have addressed this question within the framework of their work and design practice, to researchers and media art and design theorists who are facing these questions in their daily routine as lecturers and coaches of design students. The book is intended to be a means for the authors and contributors to communicate their shared passion regarding the rich potential of the design landscape for enlivening our environment.
