Raddar 4: Faux / Fake
Underpinning this edition of ‘Raddar’ is a contemplation of design and the consequences of the will and power of creation. Design has long played with the notions or variations of fake – questions of falsification, touching on issues of manipulation and broader social concerns. All the articles are written by designers or researchers for whom the concept of fake had to be re-invoked. This is because the increasingly ambiguous link between our societies with deceptive techniques, reconstructions, post-truths, alternative facts, fact-checking, etc., necessarily repositions their practices in new relationships with the tools, projects, or observations of the realms where they act and operate.
