MAPPING THIS USER’S EXPERIENCE #2

A DEDICATION

Who died and made you the boss Ward you miserable sod?

Sounds like something David Lancashire might say.

When you left Indigo David you left a gap – I’m not a hole filler but some of your conscience has rubbed off on me over the 30 plus years we’ve been friends . So here I am a ferking Ambassador whatever that is. 

After I came home from Thailand, I helped out on the Kakadu project, your first indigenous interpretation, and was continually thereafter impressed by your love of life and living and how it all fitted into Design. Perhaps it was this in your practice with Di and the work you did together through the Nineties and the Noughties that rubbed off on me most. This Irish git now has a conscience that won’t go away. David you’re the centre piece of the draft for October below until you say – no way mate. But today you’re the center piece of cancer surgery.  I wish you well. The world needs you

DAVID LANCASHIRE

You’re a lovely, loved and loving man.

Excerpts from a conversation with Dr Kevin Murray January 2011

A response to the first working group IDW2012

From the indigo web site

What is Indigenous design?

The notion of indigenous and local design is frequently contested, hard won and usually indeterminate. It often includes themes of colonisation, migration, politics, language, history, identity and conditions such as the economy and natural resources. To address this notion and to further explore its meaning and interpretation throughout the world, INDIGO was born.

INDIGO, the International Indigenous Design Network, is an open platform that connects designers worldwide in an effort to explore our understanding of indigenous design. It provides an online forum for sharing ideas and information, fostering discourse among participants, and contributing to the furtherance of indigenous and local design.

Through its participants and projects, INDIGO seeks to gain some insight into what makes design distinctive to its home, the connections to the place where it is made and for whom it is made. As more and more designers work within a global context seemingly without borders, INDIGO provides an online medium for design practice as it contributes to the formation of national cultural identities.

FOR MILLENIA

THEY WERE OF THE FOREST LIVING OFF ITS FRUITS.

SHAPING THEIR TOOLS FROM THAT WHICH THEY FOUND THERE.

BUILDING THEIR SHELTER WITHIN AND OF THE DARKNESS.

MAKING THEIR OWN LIGHT TO LIVE AND DIE BY.

NOT SATISFIED WITH THE LIGHT THEY HAD MADE

THEY CLEARED THE LIVING VEIL SAW THE SUN

AND WERE BEDAZZLED…

REDISCOVERY

OF THAT CRADLING DARKNESS AND THE CLEAVING

INNER SIGHT THE FOREST GAVE US

IS THE THEME FOR THIS CONFERENCE

TO RETHINK DESIGN AS A TOOL FOR A NEW MILLENIUM

ON THE FOUNDATIONS OF OUR HUMANITY IS THE HOPE

USING THE REMAINING VESTIGES OF TRADITIONAL CULTURE

AS THE FABRIC OF AN INCUNABULUM.
