Abstract

This position paper look at the COVID-19 pandemic human condition that arises with fundamental conversations about design as a fluid social, cultural, and political artifact. The aim of our position comes from the necessity of consider some concepts to analyse epistemic and ontological consequences of the pandemia in the field of design research. There is no question about the huge impact of pandemic disease on the planet. On the other hand, terms as environment, digital, hyperobjects have already deeply changed our perception of the reality, our daily life, our behaviours. Rather than an emergency to be responded to quickly, the virus is here intended as an opportunity to let problems and solutions already in place for some time, aware that it is not life that has changed after the pandemic, but the most accurate perception we have of it.
