FILM: Blood in the Mobile TALK: Gemma Lord

In collaboration with Product Design Year 3

From mines to market, our products leave traces that span the globe. During this discussion we will explore the anonymity enabled by globalisation and the atomisation of production, in doing so considering how we occupy conflicting roles as both consumers and citizens. Beginning by watching the film Blood in the Mobile we will question how, as emerging designers, we might seek to navigate these systems of production in the future.

Guest Speaker: Gemma Lord

Gemma explores how design might be used as a medium to question the social, cultural and political facets of emerging movements, technologies and phenomena. Having recently graduated from the Master of European Design programme at GSA, Gemma is a member of Normally, a London based design studio.
