Thoughts on the show

Communication is key when developing ideas to the masses, yet when I walked into this exhibit, I felt completely lost. The show was inspired by a recent trip to Berlin, Germany a country with a long history of artistic and design movements, yet the work presented in the space felt disconnected from a German influence. A crew of young designers part-take in a richness of a different culture; yet the work does not reflect a growth or understanding of the German experience. I was interested to see how young up-coming designers could intake and reinterpret the experience of being immersed in German art, design and history; instead I was presented with works that had no relevance to German ideals of art and design.

Data collection and technology are great tools to present large amounts of information that has the power to alter perspectives, but the manner in which the overall show was produced and how the works interpret data did not clause me to see anything or change the way I view a “issue”. Picasso used the medium of his day to provide an alternate way of rethinking and seeing the world – abstraction and cubism had purposeful meaning. Perhaps the students need to look at Dieter Rams: Ten commandments for good design.
