Form + Desire: <Linked Projects> potencial.
To share professional and academic expertise on Linked Projects
It´s an open forum for all designers.
The stage for the Conference, a three day exhibition:
Case studies, method for the Conference:

Results and publication :
The role of Desire on Form.:
Form: the perceptible shape of content;
Form: the simultaneity of interiority and its comunication;
(of soul and its body; also of same form and its refulgence).
Form of Curricula:
<prioritary synchrony> of wanting (desire),
in uniting pertinent academic knowledge and powers.
Form of professional strategy:
<prioritary synchrony> of can-be (desire),
while integrating the truth and goodness of each project
Form of design object:
<prioritary synchrony> of expression (desire),
with function and technology, at a given place.
Linked Projects Identity.
Linked Projects originated as an answer to dissociation between practice and theory.
Some university subjects depend on themes where each student tests
a semi professional practice, as material to fulfill the academic objectives of the course.
The link of the project take place among the university with State, business firm or community.
Sharing professional and academic expertise: scope.
Conference pretends to be a space for dialogue on typical lived experiences;
avoiding papers unlinked to direct perception.
Sharing refers to sober and documented narrative of good or bad results,
that occurred among professionals and students with State, market or third sector organizations.
Rediscovering the role of Desire.
Spontaneous convergence of desires has linked, implicitly, design practice and theory.
When this spontaneous convergence fades,
dissociation between practice and theory appears as dispersion and, seemingly, faintness;
not fatefuly as lack of individual talent. But, thus, universitary form vanishes.
It urges to rediscover the personal priority of desire in the new, unavoidable, forms.
Acknowledging the potential of <Linked Projects>.
Linked Projects dispose a space for desire that can illuminate affections;
move the energy for encouraging want as the actual foundation, not only for each Project.
but as well for all university formation and professional practice, particularily for a designer.
Updating the identity of Desire and its character.
Want, is discovering a <profound can-be, as the sole-possible>.
