Le design pour le(s) vivant(s) : appréhender sans optimiser

Abstract : What creative opportunities exist for designers who wish to engage in bio-fabrication processes ? Whether it's in the care of technical operations or the discovery of the fantasies that surround bio-artefacts, this article invites designers to have a critical look at bio-artefacts produced in technoscientific laboratories. We study how design can conduct a discovery process, leading to the authentication of techniques. Our hypothesis is that design, by taking a new glance at the technical fact, can work on new forms of bio-artefacts where the livings will not be reduced to a functional brick, an optimum or a model made to be copied.
