The overall aim of UNLOCK is to provide a crisp confrontation with the design trajectories angled by the students. The concept hinges on the intent and effect of design in varied scenarios. The students of NIFT present the fourth edition of ‘Non Compos Mentis’, a compilation of excerpts from the graduating works of our students from the class of 2013.
The book is reflective of analytical, observational, participatory, and evaluative approaches in design research undertaken by the class set. The assemblage gives access to a rich dialogue with twenty-seven minds and unlocks new collaborative possibilities.
