Permaculture Design Systems for a Digital Landscape
As the digital design space continues to evolve quickly around an environment of design processes that rapidly manufacture and output so much of what we experience in our day to day lives, the conveniences gained almost always overlook the amount of effort, energy, process and waste that goes into something as simple as the placement of a button. What can be learned from other systems and how can we design with consciousness around these inputs?
This talk is an observation and discussion around principles and elements of the Permaculture Design System and Digital Design Systems, looking into the overlaps, connections and interactions between design in the natural and technological worlds and ways of applying this thinking to more than the current applications. We'll cover ways of thinking about digital design from a Permaculture perspective, designing with more permanence and looking at digital design more holistically while also touching on Design System thinking applied to natural systems of elemental and atomic organisation.
Mick has roots in early web design and over 20 years experience working through the progressions of digital design and learning the concepts of atomic design and design systems. Recently becoming a Permaculture designer has given him a perspective to see natural systems of design and organisation as inspiration to influence the digital landscape.
