Video response to speculative social design brief by Heidi Dolven, Ted Matthews and Adrian Paulsen.
As a way to respond to the statement ‘I can’t get out of the house to get what I need’ we ask some fundamental questions relating to whole of patient need. We imagine a reality where the health sector considers how their services might be more efficacious if the service delivered support through communities of shared value rather than shared illness.
Heidi Dolven is an advisor at the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture. Her work for the last 7 years has had the specific focus on designs role as a driver of innovation in the public sector on all levels; from service delivery to policy design and the channels between national to local.
Ted Matthews is a service design and PhD fellow at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. He has many years experience of working with co-design towards social engagement and the co-development of public sector services. His Phd focuses on how theory from social anthropology relating to the sacred experienced through community, myth and ritual might be operationalized for the design of extraordinary experiences.
