Thank You for Your Feedback

Alex Haagaard, Liz Jackson


In Hyphen-Status, whatever follows the hyphen is systematically uncompensated and rendered powerless. When Co-Designers, Co-Creators, and User-Experts are told “Thank you for your feedback,” it essentially means we have lost control over how the information we provided (oftentimes the knowledge of lived experience) will be used. In this presentation, Alex Haagaard and Liz Jackson will discuss how their modes of resisting Hyphen-Status has led them to design against systems that rely on it.
