TID Lab at Kristiania promotes rigorous academic and artistic research with the core conviction that we can better understand and address wicked problems of our time through transdisciplinary explorations of time and temporality.

Temporality - Interactions - Design


About TID Lab

At TID*, we conduct transdisciplinary research and artistic research, teaching and outreach on the overlapping topics of design, futurism, illustration, communication, mediation, innovation, visual communication and games. The lab is a part of School of Art, Design and Media at Kristiania, located at Campus Fjerdingen.

Our studies are based on the multiplicity of reality; the understanding that there are multiple pasts, presents and alternative futures. Our aim is to start dialogues about how this multiplicity impacts people and planet, in projects, organizations and sectors in and over time. 

We partner with organizations who want to explore the role of service/ systemic design, future scenarios and/or visual communication in their organization - together with us and our students - contact us for more information.


The lab is founded on some core missions. 

  • Train students to engage with multiplicity, temporality and interactions in their professional practice.

  • Catalyze transdisciplinary research on processes, methods and practices that address the pressing issues and opportunities of our time. 


  • Address taken-for-granted assumptions about the nature and role of design, designers and design processes.  

Areas of study

While all our explorations fall under the main topic of time and temporality, we are focusing on the overlapping topics of ...
