At the international Participatory Design Conference 2022, KISD graduate student Tomás Corvalán Azócar will present a series of situated actions that is part of their final thesis in the MA Integrated Design.

Titled KN(eat)TING, the intervention follows the tradition of la once, posing an invitation to take a moment, sit together, and knit while sharing our thoughts, opinions, and learnings. It is also an invitation to share the virtual table while enjoying local drinks and snacks. In these encounters we will discuss around sentipensar, possible futures and pluriversal worlds, as well as debate the conference themes, in what is intended to be a safe space beyond academia.

Keeping food in the background and using textiles as facilitators, this rehearsal of the Chilean tea ritual, la once, focuses explicitly on conversations through making as a metaphor for the crafting of knowledge.

For the first iteration we will meet on Tuesday, August 23 between 13:00 – 15:00 (BST)
