Why is self-reflection an essential human quality in design innovation?

'Design always presents itself as serving human but its real ambition is to redesign the human.'

Colomina & Wiggley, 2016

My final year dissertation explores and evaluates the importance of self-reflection in design innovation. As a design practitioner, I think that perhaps we can draw more significance in self-reflection by looking back in order to look forward in the design process. This way, we can perhaps better design and create a more beautiful reflection of ourselves in the future.

The use of mirror paper was inspired by the process of reflection between design and innovation, to create the effect of perspective and symmetry.
