The creation of a complex design world, and of affirmative design processes, has long been predicated on the stratified protocols and established assumptions of mainstream commercial design. Limited by an emphasis on utility and function that stands at odds with the broad parameters of the art-design world, the creative capacity of the form, in art, science, and technology is underscored by a willingness to innovate and invent alternative ideas.

Spanning a wide range of design fields that focus on the nexus of art and design, and the conceptual contradictions therein, Undesign brings together leading artists, designers and theorists working at the intersection of design, art, and application. Bringing to light emerging practices that highlight the social, political and aesthetic potential of "undesigning" our complex designed world by exploring the practice-led formulations of science, engineering, biotechnology and hacktivism, this book seeks to restructure design approaches around a critical appreciation of aesthetic ideas ungoverned by a prescriptive set of norms.
