The Design Transformation Group is an international community for people interested in the new business of design as a central and essential contributor to social learning and cultural vitality. Their bi-annual DesignQuest events have inspired those brave enough to participate and challenged established forms of collaboration and exploration. DesignQuest2: Changing Energy into Form took place in 1998, and looked at how design can actively and responsibly affect the increasingly complex flow of meaning between people and designed things. This book is one outcome of DesignQuest2, echoing the course of the event with contributions from the participants sharing passion, challenging method, and creativity. Notes: Changing Energy Into Form is a manual for those wishing to inspire their own creative development. Rigorous essays on creative action and the design principles of self-organizing conceptual consciousness are complemented by first-person and experimental texts. Reading the book involves entering an intensely energetic and challenging dialogue on design-based creativity.
