          This project is about making alternative economic practices public, in order to build different types of value. A market at the border between formality and informality, materialized in a pushcart, serves as a (its) platform (for doing so). The way the cart itself is built (embracing spontaneity, adaptive re-use and organic growth), the products and services, and the ways these are traded and exchanged come together in public dialogues and represent my stake in the issue. As a designer, one cannot be held fully responsible of building alternative systems; therefore, this is but a humble attempt to trigger reflection around the topic, yet suggesting different ways of conceiving economic, social, cultural & political relations. I frame my position as a border practitioner, standing at the edge of the discipline and connecting with other professionals, as well as amateurs. This I am able to do by using something that is essential to my practice, which is evidenced throughout the project: dialogue.

            This project explores the unusually high number of aesthetic surgery procedures in South Korea. As a contextual designer from South Korea, it is interesting to compare the booming surgery phenomenon - the modification of our bodies as a way to express dignity and achieve a better position within society - with design. The research deals with many issues including advertising, global standards of beauty, obsession, pain, .... The project also deals with the ways design is part of this cosmetic surgery kingdom, as it modifies everyday life and tries to turn it into an ideal reality. I chose some basic items and made various efforts to transform them into perfect, well-known icons of design.

              Who doesn’t want to escape from reality now and then? But as our smartphones, tablets and laptops offer us all the digital diversion we need, we forget how to free our minds without them. “Our own imagination offers the best escape, but passive entertainment has made our minds lazy,” says Matthijs Holland. His film ‘Escapism’13’ shows the magical world that we carry with us inside our heads – the perfect hiding place for everyone who wants to break free. The bizarre, but intriguing fantasies we see in the film are designed to remind us of the endless power of imagination.

                Dirt, animal droppings, chewing gum, and other undefinable grime; shoes are bringing pretty much everything we stepped on into the house and leave visible and invisible traces everywhere. Lenka Praxova made a film effectively warning us of germs and other dirty house guests by showing what you bring in. In the film, Lenka takes an original approach to cleanliness. Putting on a brand new pair of spotless shoes at the doorstep is an option – or should we in fact take them off?

                  People who take the same bus to work every day, no longer have an eye for their surroundings. With transparent, GPS-synchronized smart screens integrated in the bus windows, Ilse Heesterbeek has found a way to revive their interest in what happens outside. Historical scenes are projected over what is seen through the window, telling the traveller what happened here years or decades ago. If for example all of a sudden a herd of cows appears on the pavement, that signifies a former cattle market. Not a dull moment anymore on your daily bus ride!

                    When someone close to you goes through an episode you only see bits and pieces of the thoughts and logic that come with this disorder. It becomes hard to understand their actions and reactions and can leave you feeling guilty for not understanding or powerless for not knowing how to help them. The MIND BROWSER on thoughtsofdepression.com takes you into the reality of someone with depression. Thoughts are abstracted into words to show a train of thought that could appear in the mind of a depressed person. The illustrated thoughts are co-created with people who suffered from depression themselves, and with whom I had many conversations during the course of this project. They offer insight in the self-reinforcing reality that is called depression. The browser is a tool to help understand the logic and the reality of someone going through an episode for people who are unfamiliar with these feelings. I hope it will help to make different choices in communication and a difficult time a bit more intelligible.

                      Grown crystals exfoliate the skin, slippery matter massages the feet and drifting mist cleanses the face – these are just some of the possibilities portrayed in Nina van Bart’s vision for the wellness industry. In her trend forecast, we become alchemists, mixing minerals, powders and liquids into our own body care products in a quest for the ultimate treasure of wellbeing. The bathroom is a laboratory where substances react with each other to give new super-sensory experiences. “After leading hectic lives in the fast lane, now the economic crisis is making us reassess what is important. We will choose to take better care of ourselves,” says Nina.
