15 steps to a wonderful patent


Public presentations of the students of Art & Science and Social Design departments, University of Applied Arts Vienna


"A patent discloses, and protects. A wonder deblocks and offends. A wonderful patent is able re-order the social. It assembles and reconfigures human and non human actors. It may create needs and human necessities. It is a fragile socio-technical-scientific device that desperately looks for allies. Are you willing to become enlisted?"
