Q1: what is critical or speculative design and how it is different from conventional approaches to design?
After I read the critical Q&A and watched the video,I still have not got much clearly idea about its definition.So I began to fond other information on the Internet.And after researches I got some of the information and those make me thinking.
In my point of view, critical and speculative design is a kind of way to find a question; they maybe have the low practicability but they have the meaningful connotation. I mean, they make people consider ,and gave the inspiration to us.And they combine the new technical ,theory,exploration.
There some obvious difference between critical design and normal design :
critical design is to find a question,but normal design is to focus on audience to solve a question.
Critical design including the speculate to the future.It engaging us thinking more.
Q2. Find an example.
