Living Well is an exhibition that explores the tangible and intangible ways in which design improves our daily lives.
What is the capacity of design to help us feel or live better? How does it help us achieve higher states of personal health, resource efficiency, conviviality, collaboration, mindfulness, or even happiness? Living Well will engage broadly with ideas of value-based outcomes and user-based interaction as functions of design through the presentation of projects and works that respond to these inquiries.
Ultimately, Living Well asks about the ways in which design transforms us, or how we use design to transform ourselves for the better.
