"At Rhode Island School of Design students are immersed in a culture where making questions, ideas, and objects, using and inventing materials, and activating experience all serve to define a form of critical thinking--albeit with one's hands--i.e. 'critical making.'  The Art of Critical Making, by RISD faculty and staff, describes fundamental aspects of RISD's approach to 'critical making' and how this can lead to innovation.  The process of making taught at RISD is deeply introspective, passionate, and often provocative."--publisher description
