Bruno Latour: “What is real resists.”
Reality most conspicuously resists our ideals.
What do we do when reality and ideal diverge?
We can be incurious, and ignore the gap.
We can be ideological, and condemn those who make it hard to ignore the gap.
We can impersonate gods, and condemn the gap itself.
We can be industrious, and reshape the world to conform to our ideals.
We can be reflective, and reshape our ideals to conform to the world.
We can be designerly, and reshape the world and our ideals together.
Design is not a praxis.
Design is praxis.
