WRITING ON CARE
Dreamlike writing prompts for design museum residents
2020



In a 3-hour session with four Designers in Residence, we explored the theme of care through the program directed by Sumitra Upham at the London Design Museum. The designers in residence, Abiola Onabule, Cynthia Voza Lusilu, Enni-Kukka Tuomala, and Ioana Man wrote gorgeous stream-of-consciousness pieces on the shape and qualities of caring in their work. An article written for Matter–Mind Studio features each of the designers and their writing. Exercises made part of a design process like this make space for reflective practices in a way that ‘crits,’ the process of writing formal papers, strategy meetings, lunch break chats, and live, in-situ work with people are not traditionally designed to make.

ABOVE: An illustrated interpretation of one line from one of the designer’s writing on care.
