Objects Rescoped, the Berlin edition
During DMY we will present a selection of the last Dutch Design Week 2011 exhibition: Objects Rescoped
Objects Rescoped’ questions why things are the way they are. Noticing instead of merely looking is the essential theme. The participants, give their own refreshing view on re-appreciating. They are redefining the meaning of apparently ordinary things; rust turns into silver beauty as soon as you zoom in on it and a geometrical object seems to be able to create eclipses, fog and clouds.
'Objects Rescoped' is formed by a group of designers that graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven and stayed in close contact ever since. In many cases, there is an overlap in the theme of their work. Materiality is a main topic, as well as the crafts to apply these materials. Telling stories is another important theme. Sometimes this is done literally, like in the animated maps of Florian de Visser, that explain the history of a particular landscape. In other cases this is much more indirect, for example by showing the principle of an eclipse or the oxidation of silver in mirrors. Some works are also contrasting. Geometric lights and a duck feather tapestry seem to be almost opposites. But most importantly, the works enhance each other. For this reason the group organized joint exhibitions in the last two years during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. This year, for the first time a selection will be shown in Berlin during the DMY 2012.
