FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Doctoral dissertation „Antifragility in design”shows an experiment as a key factor in the process of trend development, which enables the design of products, services and experiences with innovative potential. In the thesis Agnieszka Polkowska proposes a set of tools for designers for forecasting and designing the future, so far used in sociological sciences. It takes into account the theory of antifragility of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, assuming the existence of a division of phenomena into fragile, robust and antifragile. They have specific life cycle thanks to which we can predict how their nature will change over time. As designers we can materialise the ideas, creating a resource of knowledge that can initiate a discussion about a possible and desired future, but also constitute a starting point for conducting further research on the implementation of innovation.
Based on that a speculative proposal was created, constituting the tangible effect of theoretical considerations and being a pre-implementation stage. „Food for thought” is the essential part of PhD dissertation and is a project that was created in a cooperation with the nootropic substances producer.
The starting point for the project was exploring the possibility of developing the product offer was the analysis of the digital capitalism reality, in which it is important for the individual to be able to control oneself by affecting emotional states and performance. In this project, Agnieszka proposed the use of nootropic substances as an active ingredient of food of the future, which task will be to expand human cognitive capabilities.
