This issue of MEI has been created in response to questions posed and imposed by the ever-increasing digitization of society and its outputs. A diverse range of articles explore the impact of shifting technological narratives on artefacts, media and means of communication, through an interdisciplinary discourse on a broad range of socially relevant design themes. The participating authors discuss architecture; the built environment of the city; signs and signage; interaction between human and machine; culture as visual data; emerging robotic narratives; fashion as a communicator of form and means of bodily expression and design itself as a means of representation of myths, memory, hegemonies, participation, expression and democracy. The issue
commences with an interview devoted to a new classification of design proposed by Manuel Zacklad, Professor in Information Sciences and Communication at the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts (CNAM).
