Thingness exhibition

Monday 23 May 2011 Seminar & Workshop

One of our studio designers Maiko Tsutsumi, also a lecturer at Camberwell College of Arts, has co-curated an exhibition 'Thingness'.

''There is a renewed interest in what the act of making does to humans and our understanding of the object.  Makers and designers seem to be at a point of reflection: re-evaluating our sensitivities to objects and materials.  The exhibition and accompanying symposium reflect on how objects come to be and how the making of an object affords it 'a voice''.

For more information please refer their website.

Camberwell College of Artsにて開催中の『Thingness』はt.n.a. Design Studioのスタッフの一人、堤麻衣子がキュレーションをしています。「作る」という行為からデザイナーや工芸家は何を獲得しているのか?モノや素材感はクリエーションにどんな影響を与えているのか?モノや素材に対する感受性を通した世界の理解のしかたを探るこの展示会は6月10日まで。
