Fine Design for the End of the World on Core 77

In May, I exhibited along with my fellow Cranbrook 3D peers at Collective Design Fair in NYC. Our show titled "Fine Design for the End of the World" was centered around growing concerns about social, economic, and environmental issues of the world and the contributions of industrial design to those issues.

RO/LU Workshop

Spring Semester kicked off with a workshop with Matt Olson of the recently disbanded RO/LU Studio (and now of OOIEE). 

We started with several group readings including: "Pierre Menard author or Quixote" by Jorge Louis Borges, "Compatibility Mode" by Seth Price, "Art Which Can't be Art" by Alan Kaprow, "I (not love) information" and "Take Care" by Anthony Huberman. 

The idea was to recreate a collection of pictures of the artist Anthony Caro at Bennington College amongst a collection of sculpture spare parts - translating that moment in time to the now. 

The originals:

Marinating these discussions/ideas of appropriation in contemporary art and design in my head... more to come later.
