Dining-Centric Specularity (WIP)
Course Instructor: Laura Devendorf PhD
Medium: Speculative Artifacts, Website
Introducing Dining-Centric Specularity, a commercial product line of dinnerware and cutlery that is used for uncomfortable, speculative experiments at home, with friends, at public establishments, and out of the art gallery. This website and the artifacts of DCS are used to speculate on an implied near future where speculative and even uncomfortable art and design become commodified with a high commercial demand for young adults to express their "unique and cultured"—or "aesthetic"—minds.
