If everything is connected

Design Futures

If everything is connected is my process dealing with the fact that everything is interconnected with everything else. Synthesizing several authors and theories into one, my essay builds up the argument that, of course everything is connected, but it’d be illogical and senseless to try and understand that all by yourself.

Consequently, I conceptualized an online platform on which ‘the masses’ are leveraged to collaboratively explore contexts and thereby how things are interconnected. This is then used to grow and develop ideas. Eventually, this can lead to a new form of ideation that is be more inclusive, collaborative and comprehensive.
