How might design enhance our understanding of, and our ability to communicate about, law as a social phenomenon? At what cost? Mindsets, tools and processes from design such as visualisation, sprints and prototyping are increasingly identified as distinctive and useful; and adopted across legal fields from practice to activism to policy-making (Perry-Kessaris 2019). With the… Continue reading Work in progress: Doing socio-legal research in design mode
The IEL Pop Up Collection was designed to ‘make unity from and for diversity’, visibly and tangibly, and with prefigurative spirit.
Sociolegal model making 7: Object-based commentary in a curated setting from Amanda Perry-Kessaris on Vimeo. This is the seventh in a series of experiments (see here for the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth) investigating how model making can be used in sociolegal research processes. As these experiments have progressed I have come to realise that my intention is to understand how… Continue reading Sociolegal model making 7: object-based commentary in a curated space
My first encounter with ox-hide ingots was on the cover of a specialist economic history text. Cyprus is home to the largest deposits of copper ore in the Mediterranean region, concentrated around the Trodoos mountains. I came face-to-face with, and became attached to, my ox-hide ingot during an experiment in object-based brainstorming that I conducted in… Continue reading In pursuit of the copper ox-hide ingot
https://vimeo.com/199899293 This is the sixth in a series of experiments (see the first, second, third, fourth and fifth) investigating how modelling can be used in sociolegal research processes. I am a sociolegal researcher seeking to generate insights that are both theoretically informed and empirically grounded. Almost all my research includes qualitative, semi-structured interviews that are always time consuming and expensive to complete and sometimes awkward. But they are also usually extremely… Continue reading Sociolegal model making 6: place-holding
Sociolegal model making 5 Material metaphorization from Amanda Perry-Kessaris on Vimeo. This is the fifth in a series of experiments (see the first, second, third and fourth) investigating how modelling can be used in econosociolegal research processes. It is an extension of a collaborative project that I completed with Andy Renmei as part of our MA in Graphic Media Design at London College of… Continue reading Sociolegal model making 5: Material metaphorization
Sociolegal model making 3: conceptualisation from Amanda Perry-Kessaris on Vimeo. This is the third in a series of experiments investigating how modelling can be used in econosociolegal research processes (see the first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth). The substantive focus of the piece is the construction of legal indicators, such as those produced by the World Bank's Doing Business project I planned… Continue reading Sociolegal model making 3: Conceptualisation
