Design operates at many levels, from thoughtful detail through organisational transformation to the changes in society and the world. As the famous Ray and Charles Eames Powers of Ten film showed, each power of ten zoom level on the world contains its own complexity, ecosystem and details, but they are all interrelated. In the Power of Ten podcast, Andy Polaine talks to guests from a broad range of disciplines about the intersection of design, technology, psychology, organisations, culture and society.
