In the course of this report I discuss the route that I took to come to an understanding of Design and its societal role, the development of a context for my work, and the nature of my design process. I thereby hope to lay bare the rudiments of the “system” behind my process, and final work--in other words, my methodology. Additionally, I clarify my views on Design’s disciplinary position vis-à-vis scientific and technological disciplines. I also espouse a vision wherein Design assumes a defining position within modern human society. Accompanying this vision is my call for a more active Design practice, in support of which I have outlined the possibilities inherent in the specific innovation of the pro-active object.
