Making Up Design An upcoming show at Art Center’s South Campus called Made Up: Design's Fictions will feature designers who "forecast, hypothesize, muse, skylark, role-play, put-on-airs, freak-out or otherwise fake-it" to produce work that elicits a response or brings about change in the real world.
