Workshop framework created by Joana & Nestor Pestana, inspired by the writings of José Saramago and Bruno Latour. It aims to exchange knowledge and explore the underlying social values that objects might dramatise when humans interact with them. It also aims to raise questions about the role of design in a strong AI era. If an object's shape informs social interactions, could it also inform the decision-making of an AI object?

The first series of workshops took place at Arquivo 237, Lisbon, March 2017. 

Workshop leaders: Joana Pestana & Nestor Pestana.

Funded by Arquivo 237 and Study in Portugal Network (SiPN), Lisbon.
