Disrupt Design power distribution Project

power play / In development / Estimated Release 2018


equitable access to power 


Power is a finite resource that makes or breaks relations, develops or dismantles opportunities, and constructs or deconstructs society as a whole. This project is a proposition to develop a new schema that will change semiotic language for dissecting and understating power relations in any given arena by developing a set of exploratory and functional tools that assist in conversing and articulating the access to and dissemination of power.


We tackle big problems in provocative ways, and power is one of the biggest. This project is all about finding a new language for discussing power in a more equitable and effective way. From the political systems to the workplace, there are many opportunities for a more equitable space for power distribution; but currently, power is unevenly allocated, resulting in many systemic social and environmental issues. This Power Play toolkit will explore the fundamental issues of power and develop a new semiotic and schematic language and a set of tools. It will enable anyone, from a 5 to 85-year-old, to obtain equitable access and discuss the impacts and effects that power has on them, leading to propositional space for power play.
