The answer to my students in the design thesis studio is simply – I, too, can choose to do ‘minimum’.
The ‘play safe’ culture is prevalent in UM. And it’s so ripe and growing in the 5th year design thesis studio. It is a disease because you are never challenged and you just love to ‘stay safe’ in your comfort zone.
You do not want to complain, less of all, provoke or cause any unwarranted attention, but this is what happens when all you think is not to ‘rock the boat’ and stay under the radar. Sure, why not?
Play safe then. It’s your choice, isn’t it.
