From Madeline Gannon’s transformation of a robot into living mechanical creature, to the frivolity of throw away fashion in Christien Meindertsma’s “Fibre Market” installation - themes which hold huge relevance to today’s society are confronted, such as OMA’s Brexit-inspired “Pan-European living room”.
Even dating apps are being scrutinised through “Intimate Strangers” by Andres Jacque, his installation examines our search for intimacy through social media.
The only UK-based designer exhibiting is celebrated fashion guru Hussein Chalayan, he’s created several wearable devices capable of detecting and projecting the wearer’s emotions. Other wearable exhibits on show include Neri Oxman’s “Vespers” a series of 3D masks that explore the transition from life to death including one she created for singer, Bjork.
