Reconsidering the Local and the Global

Triggered by both the oft-essentialised cultural or national identity as basis of design and the lack of acknowledging local specificities in the name of global design, this panel seeks to uncover the complexities and tensions of the local and global that shape how design relates to issues such as identity, values and usage through the lens of RCA alumni and student projects.

With Mohammed Daud (Innovation Design Engineering ’11), Prapat Jiwarangsan (Ceramics & Glass ’11), Jasleen Kaur (Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery ’10), Wenjin Yao (PhD Innovation Design Engineering ’12) and chaired by Shirley Surya (History of Design ‘11)
