A surface, a screen, a shape – these seemingly simple elements have been the starting points for the selected group of designers and artists. Yet, the works produced are windows or peekaboo moments to the intangible, the unexpected, the feared, the desired- eliciting emotional response. In an effort to understand the complexity of our world today, the collection physicalises the invisible issues and beauties so we have a chance to solve and a moment to appreciate. Take a tour from Ollie Ma's Replacing Nature to Guy Mills' WiLD Network to understand nature as an element besides itself. Unfold and un-seam the square in the works of Jinmei Wang and Danielle Elsener to reveal the depth of flatness. A huge thank you and round of applause to this collective for giving us a rare sighting of my virtual hero- Pikachu in the flesh.
