A proposal to redefine design in a way that not only challenges the field's dominant paradigms but also changes the practice of design itself.

In Critical Fabulations, Daniela Rosner proposes redefining design as investigative and activist, personal and culturally situated, responsive and responsible. Challenging the field's dominant paradigms and reinterpreting its history, Rosner wants to change the way we historicize the practice, reworking it from the inside. Focusing on the development of computational systems, she takes on powerful narratives of innovation and technology shaped by the professional expertise that has become integral to the field's mounting status within the new industrial economy. To do so, she intervenes in legacies of design, expanding what is considered "design" to include long-silenced narratives of practice, and enhancing existing design methodologies based on these rediscovered inheritances. Drawing on discourses of feminist technoscience, she examines craftwork's contributions to computing innovation―how craftwork becomes hardware manufacturing, and how hardware manufacturing becomes craftwork. She reclaims, for example, NASA's "Little Old Ladies," the women who built information storage for the Apollo missions by weaving wires through magnetized metal rings.

Mixing history, theory, personal experience, and case studies, Rosner reweaves fibers of technoscience by slowly reworking the methods and margins of design. She suggests critical fabulations as ways of telling stories that awaken alternative histories, and offers a set of techniques and orientations for fabulating its future. Critical Fabulations shows how design's hidden inheritances open different possibilities for practice.


在《批判的幻想》中,Daniela Rosner提出重新定義設計,不僅挑戰該領域的主流範式,還改變設計實踐本身。她將設計重新定義為調查和行動主義、個人和文化背景、反應和負責任。Rosner挑戰該領域的主流範式,重新詮釋其歷史,希望改變我們對實踐的歷史化方式,從內部重新構建它。她專注於計算系統的發展,對由專業知識塑造的創新和技術的強大敘事進行介入,這些敘事已成為該領域在新工業經濟中日益重要的一部分。為此,她介入設計的傳承,擴展了被視為“設計”的範疇,包括長期被沉默的實踐敘事,並基於這些重新發現的傳承增強現有的設計方法論。她借鑒女性主義技術科學的論述,探討手工藝對計算創新的貢獻-手工藝如何成為硬件製造,以及硬件製造如何成為手工藝。例如,她重新詮釋了NASA的“小老太太”,這些女性通過將線纏繞在磁化金屬環上為阿波羅任務建造信息存儲設備。通過混合歷史、理論、個人經驗和案例研究,Rosner逐漸改變設計的方法和邊緣,重新編織技術科學的細線。她提出“批判的幻想”作為喚醒替代歷史的故事講述方式,並提供了一套技術和取向,以幻想其未來。《批判的幻想》展示了設計的隱藏傳承如何為實踐開啟不同的可能性。
