The podcast 99% Invisible aired this piece about Max Newhouse’s 2 crow sourced soundscapes broadcast on NPR in the 1970s and the 2000s.
I thought of our sound week, and wondered what we would have talked about as a class if we looked at using this art practice as a tactical design practice.
The podcast is named after the phrase coined by Interaction Designer Jared Spool that good design is invisible.
“Good design, when it’s done well, becomes invisible. It’s only when it’s done poorly that we notice it”.
