This documentary film that investigates the pros and cons of what has come to be called the “social design space.” This in itself is a bit of a misnomer, as clearly all design requires some sort of social contract, but the term has come into universal use from a need to differentiate design’s civil society and community characteristics from its commercial aspects.
