Example text

Neither chimpanzees nor super-computers possess our sense of purpose and intention, nor do they plan and set goals as we do. In essence, design is ‘creative intentionality’, the difference between the architect and the bee, and in many ways design is ‘a measure of man’. Any human activity which involves problem identification, reflection, experiments and proposals is a manifestation of the design process, whether it be arranging one’s desk or designing a space station. While every human designs, a designer is someone who specialises in the subject.

And clearly one of the reasons why Morris championed the decorative or ‘lesser arts’ was because far more ordinary working people were engaged in producing fabrics, pottery, glassware, furniture, clothing, metalwork and so on than in ‘fine’ or ‘professional’ art of any kind. In this respect Morris was constantly restating the golden rule of ethics, namely, do unto others, as you would want done to you! A clear aspect of Morris’s design for life was to consider, speculate about and work out what was needed to transform peoples lives via a revolutionizing of society, of social relations.

A clear aspect of Morris’s design for life was to consider, speculate about and work out what was needed to transform peoples lives via a revolutionizing of society, of social relations. His critique of conventional politics also embraces the inadequacy of ‘labourism’ in the UK: the trade union consciousness of limited demands of more pay and better conditions within capitalism. As I have mentioned before, Morris’s fullest account of the processes contained in this transformation to a communist society is in ‘News from Nowhere’, which should be read by anyone who even vaguely suspects that all is not well and that something else might be imagined and worked for.
