Our real world is a concrete mix of work, family, personal goals, immediate needs, questions, and aspirations. The system we have built to handle the complexity of everyday life is becoming more and more complicated itself, in some ways too complicated for us to understand. This escalating complexity points to a larger phenomenon in modern life: its necessarily improvisational, and iterative nature. We generate a new set of provisional rules; we compare, reclaim, and search for insights from everyday life, seeking gradually to design the best experience to shape our life and our future state. Design explores the ways that people construct and muddle through their lives, how they encounter situations and make decisions based on their own experiences. This necessarily entails better understanding of how people think today, in their everyday life. We search for new and hopeful developments in the greatest and most complex of human projects: co-existence, connection and co-evolution.
