Description

We Have Impact is a collection of short essays on design and society. The book was conceived as an exercise in both thinking and framing design into a poetic system of language and verse. The contents and its aggressive periodicity are braided into a single written design project. We Have Impact addresses how the problem of design itself has been overlooked, particularity in the social design fields. Boigon extracts the design attributes of a variety of sites, including questions around who designed the Weekend, Halo, Mutiny and how snow redesigns the city's surface and audio-graphic qualities. WHI is divided into an eccentric directory of content in which the overall cartographic grammatology creates a pathway into the enchanted forest of the authors wild mind. The author retools the social field of design with each chapter and delivers a scrabble of words across a calculated cadence of verse.

About the Author
Brian Boigon's work as a cultural producer was launched with his book "Speed Reading Tokyo" in 1990. He has worked in and out of academia, the entertainment and media arts industries. He is currently the Director of the Undergraduate Architectural Studies program at Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Design at the University of Toronto. As a teacher on fire, he has penned a recent studio lecture course entitled "How to design almost anything" which will be soon followed by "How to design almost nothing". Boigon's current research is based on the hysterical history of video gaming and his targeted extraction of a motion pathway design theory from cartoons to wireframes. His recent article "Wild Physics" is a tirade on modular locomotive design during game play. Boigon lives in Toronto and continues to lecture and work internationally.
