MAIN TOPIC AND BRIEFING
The last months of our lives as individuals have been marked by the awareness of the value of distance.
The social distance; the geographical distance of work; our relationships; the planet made small by the increasingly easy and suddenly interrupted movements; the planet made very small by the need to stay at home; the distance between families, groups and individuals because of their economic status; the proxemics in different cultures (Italians no longer shake hands, in the East no one ever shakes hands); the distance that increases between those who produce and those who consume (food, sales, etc.); the distance finally zeroed with the family with whom one lives; the distance recovered with nature; the reduced distance that animals and flowers have shown towards the built and inhabited world.
The distance between countries.
The distance with the great problems of our lives that have become small.
Conduct your research based on the topic stated in the Brief, in two steps:
1. Imagine a new product or update an existing one (product, service, garment, visual campaign) that may contribute to reduce distance or to transform it into a value to improve individuals lives and future generations. Focus on something relevant to the specific course you’re interested in and comment on the reasons behind your proposal.
2. If you already have a design portfolio, choose one of your design ideas that might be in continuity with the one identified before, and describe it. If none of your projects is related, please develop it or write a brief relevant and aligned to the requirements.
