Criticize to subsist

“Critical practice functions as a catalyst to change the mainstream or the status quo”

Ramia Mazé, 2008

Design is no longer seen as a passive product in day life, but a conjugation of a goal to achieve by itself and a channel to transmit something that enriches the consumer. The purpose of Critical Design is the use of Design to raise awareness, to be useful, to have a purpose, in some kind of way.

The honest purpose of Critical Design is not to suggest a new reality to put in practice, is to criticize the reality that we live in by challenging the common sense and making the user assimilate the concept behind practice.
