Design and research

I noticed a big connection between design work and academic research I had never thought of before.

When it comes to design, most often it’s about getting your ideas out and then picking and choosing the best of them. Then you fiddle with these designs to see if there isn’t a better way at going about things. This so-called fiddling shows that you have considered other ideas, and that you have truly exhausted your options.

The same thing holds true when doing (designing) a research project. You first think of a solution for a certain problem, or a means to test certain conditions, and then you also add other ideas and why you chose against them.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
