In many respects, design is a provocation of the mind that makes us see the world afresh. Our speaker series, “Smashing Sacred Cows,” seeks to challenge our assumed truths about design and its conventions. The first MAD talk in this series, Technology as Material, looked at technology as a material rather than a tool. This upcoming talk hopes to inspire a critical dialogue about the importance of design.
