Studio Drift- Choreographing the Future
July 22th (Sun) 14:30-16:30
2L, Learning Space
Design Society | Sea World Culture and Arts Center
Language: English, with Chinese translation
Over more than a decade of their existence, Studio Drift’s work in product and furniture design has evolved into increasingly larger, often site-specific and moving installations which they have realized all over the world. The works occupy a wholly unique place between disciplines such as tech art, performance, and bio-design.
Lonneke Gordijn, one of the co-founders of the exhibition “the value of design”, will come to the Design Society to share with the public the stories behind their wonderful works.
Fragile Future, by Studio Drift
The sculpture consists of three-dimensional bronze electrical circuits connected to light emitting dandelions. It contains real dandelion seeds, that were picked by hand, and glued seed by seed to LED lights. This labor-intensive process is a clear statement against mass production and throwaway culture.
Shylight, by Studio Drift
Shylight has become an object that feels alive because of unpredictable, natural-looking movements: it descends to blossom in all its glorious beauty, to subsequently close and retreat upward again.
Flylight, by Studio Drift
The work questions the delicate balance between the group and the individual. While birds are the ultimate symbol of freedom, in a flock they move as one single entity creating mesmerizing patterns. This flock behavior is an example of ‘self-organization’, meaning that no single bird leads the flight.
