Abstract: Today we live most of our time with the head in one place and the body in another, a dichotomy between interior and exterior, home and office, private domain and urban/social/cultural domain. Living and working in a specific place as a continuum legacy is an atypical case from an occasional perspective, where everything looks further and further like gypsies lives, looking incessantly for new territories in a vast domain, even if this domain is intrinsically associated to immobility. Also the digital attachments or extensions of our body synthesized in images, circuits, bits and sounds, construct this technological demography of fast-fast (fast-love, fast-food, fast-security, fast-web, fast-services, fast-transport, fast-family…). For more intense remedial products and remedial services we deliver, asking for the slow, more proposed forms of products/services will emerge in this negative cycle, increasing the fissure between the idea of sustainability and the pretensions of being well. The intangible products|services and the miniaturization applied in production did not diminish the overall consumption, plus the script affected to products for every individual customization, augmented the volume for this inertia corrective products. In this sense the awareness of thinking in new scenarios as design practice, stands for a radical proceedings inside ecological times (Manzini, 2003), bringing to our mind the possibility of assembly/creating a new kind of knowledge. Currently we take in hand a point of transition, a point where well-being is conducted as social learning process with virtues and mistakes through a system device for innovative sustainable paths. A transition that will affect every dimension of the socio-technical system and it will touch every scales of time, and space at which it works.
