This is a design + research initiative of F. Kursat Ozenc , and Margaret Hagan, with the contributions of our collaborators. Our current and former collaborators include Ted Matthews, Joshua McVeigh, Isabel Behncke, Nick Hobson, and Defne Civelekoglu.
The Lab is a way for us to capture what happens in our classes, the research we do, and to attract other designers, technologists, org change leaders, and researchers who are interested in this same topic.
It grows out of a fascination with the power of rituals to give meaning to how we live and what we do. The lab works to integrate the concept & history of rituals into design work, as well as to generate new rituals for use in modern life.
