This session was about the dark side of our bachelor project. We were talking about disappointments and nightmares regarding the project but also about the term of owning something.

Research Question

Currently my research question sounds something like:

How can design disrupt consumerism and ownership economy?


We were given the task to reflect upon the outcome of our BA project with the following two questions:

Where would I be disappointed?

It would be disappointing not to be able to gain valuable insights in why current concepts that try to disrupt consumerism don’t work in a bigger scale or the area they’re applied to and if my design wouldn’t have any local impact on a community.

How could it end up in a nightmare?

The worst nightmare would be if an innovative idea would be adopted by a company for the sake of consumerism and profit.
