So “it’s not what it is, it’s what it does”? What does that mean, anyway?

It’s about how design intersects with actual people in the virtual and physical world.

It’s design that is site-specific, 360° surround-sound, in the spaces between people and place.

It’s design for interaction, learning, and reflection; instead of distraction or isolation.

It’s affect and effect. Digital and analog. Function and friction. You and us.
