In pursuit of the copper ox-hide ingot

My first encounter with ox-hide ingots was on the cover of a specialist economic history text.

If, as if, then: the implications of framing econosociolegal questions as design problems

Mission for the moment from Amanda Perry-Kessaris on Vimeo. My mission for the moment is to approach econosociolegal questions using graphic design processes (thinking-doing) and products (artefacts-experiences).
