How to Pop Shove It

How to Pop Shove It, or The Last Thing We Need is Designers
Things – great things – seem to appear out of nowhere. This “nowhere” turns out to be the most vital creative space we will ever encounter as designers, but just how do we arrive at a place that is often so far outside ourselves?

In their talk, Spurse members Iain Kerr and Petia Morozov identify and explore the design potential of “nowhere” through a range of recent projects and experiments.
