Showing sociolegal design as work in progress

https://vimeo.com/214063697 Work in progress shows shows are a standard element of design degrees. Like work in progress sessions in social sciences they offer an opportunity to reflect and take stock. But the visible and tangible features of design shows introduce a several additional and productive dimensions and I discovered when I displayed my work on the theme of … Continue reading Showing sociolegal design as work in progress

Sociolegal model making 8: Pop-Up Museum of Legal Objects

This is the eight in a series of experiments (first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh) investigating how model making can be used in sociolegal research processes. As these experiments have progressed I have come to realise that my intention is to understand how we can, and why we might, make sociolegal research ‘visible and tangible’. This experiment is similar … Continue reading Sociolegal model making 8: Pop-Up Museum of Legal Objects

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. Cyprus is home to the largest deposits of copper ore in the Mediterranean region, concentrated around the Trodoos mountains. I came face-to-face with, and became attached to, my  ox-hide ingot during an experiment in object-based brainstorming that I conducted in … Continue reading In pursuit of the copper ox-hide ingot

Sociolegal model making 6: place-holding

https://vimeo.com/199899293 This is the sixth in a series of experiments (see the first, second, third, fourth and fifth) investigating how modelling can be used in sociolegal research processes. I am a sociolegal researcher seeking to generate insights that are both theoretically informed and empirically grounded. Almost all my research includes qualitative, semi-structured interviews that are always time consuming and expensive to complete and sometimes awkward. But they are also usually extremely … Continue reading Sociolegal model making 6: place-holding

Collaborative making to solve policy problems: lessons for legal research?

The Future Imaginaries series run by the Innovation Insights Hub at the University of the Arts London included a Policy Imaginaries workshop led by Director of the Hub, Lucy Kimbell and Noah Raford of the Museum of the Future in Dubai. The workshop focus was on how the 'future-making practices' used by designers can be deployed in a policy context, using the … Continue reading Collaborative making to solve policy problems: lessons for legal research?
