Link the Dark
Design is used to be conducted under the Sun, where everything is visible: the ergonomics of a product, the pixel perfection of an interface or the value proposition of a service. While these are constrained by other invisible counterparts, alleged dark matters which, usually emerge from the organisational settings, the applied business models, the regime and policies of the regulatory context.
Having recognised this dim gap, Sen strives to align business strategy with systems, processes, organisations and experiences, linking the dark parts holistically to ensure later they would be wired with human-centeredness. It resembles considering the resilience among chair, interior, architecture, street and city.
For Sen, his ambition lies in exploring the dimension of being strategic by adventuring into ever new scopes. A day road paver, a night flower planter, practical yet poetic. He is now researching on next generations of future smart city under PACT project at Connect Everyday Lab.
Sen Lin is a Strategic Service Designer from Shanghai, based in China and the Netherlands.
