We Make Carpets
BY MARCIA NOLTE
@ VOL 13
ON FEB 24, 2015
Speaker Marcia Nolte discusses WE MAKE CARPETS, a buisness that does not make carpets. At least, not the kind of carpet you can walk on. Still, one of the visitors of the Dutch Design Week 2010 stepped all over Fork Carpet.
The carpets are not meant to be touched either. But it sometimes happens anyway. ‘Muisjes’ Carpet suddenly had an imprint of a finger. A visitor nibbled on Candybar Carpet.
But to glue everything down or put an art barrier around it? No. That doesn’t fit with the work. From a distance it may look like a carpet but you have to come close to see it is actually made of clothes pegs. Or some other everyday product.

How we can find our own role in the European “Refugee Crisis"
BY AURELIA STR
@ VOL 33
ON MAY 22, 2017
With the onset of a ‘Refugee crisis’ in Europe we are confronted with a narrative that has become too emotional and polarised to understand its core message: refugees are people like you and me.
We can hardly imagine how much struggle it must be to leave one's own country and everything that is close to one's heart behind. But it doesn’t take much for us to open our arms and make someone feel welcome, says Aurelia Streit.
She believes that we can change the current narrative towards refugees in Europe by establishing local platforms for intercultural exchange.
Re-wiring the addicted brain
BY MICHAEL TRAYFORD
@ VOL 19
ON JUN 01, 2018
Substance use and compulsive behaviors cause structural changes in the brain that can be reversed. 21st century, brain-based treatment approaches to addiction recovery hold great promise in combating this growing public health crisis.
We explore the understanding that addiction is a brain problem, not a moral failing or character flaw. That addiction and associated disorders of learning and behavior can be effectively remediated through re-wiring of neural pathways and networks.
"Androids dream of real sheep" (or more boringly) "The implications of the things we make"
BY JACK SHEPPARD
@ VOL 23
ON AUG 02, 2018
Empathy is a fundamental part of our human experience but the technology we build and design is at odds with that. So what is empathy, where does it come from and what can we learn from it?
Let’s talk about what it means to be an empathetic being, the effect technology is having on our ability empathise with each other and what we can do to understand each other better, communicate and design more ethical ‘things’ that help people be people.
