Pressetext: The 2014 edition of Open Set under the theme “Social Game” centers on the role of the designer in processes of public engagement with cultural production and distribution. The processes we address and their consequences are directly connected to current global economical, technological, and social change. The rise in new creative and decentralized forms of economy is reshaping working design conditions and relations with clients and end users. We see that we are part of a new type of cross-disciplinary collaboration, which deals better with the complex and ever-changing requests from the public. Working in an era of technological boom, therefore, requires increased attention to the digital medium and the ability to adapt and build our own design tools.

This societal context positions the designer not as executor or producer, but as creator of strategies, facilitating the conditions for social processes and even provoking new ones. Open Set examines this theme by focusing on existing reactions from the creative industry to new social requirements—a focus informed by designers who create participatory and interactive experiences, act as journalists building visual stories, and initiate social processes and digital platforms.
