CURATED BY MIRIAM VAN DER LUBBE:
As exhibitions often show final results and finished designs, the process of getting there stays hidden. This overlooks the beauty of creation and ignores the relevance of development and innovation when a design is still unfinished. Crucial links to the public, the industry, co-creators, manufacturers, producers and many others are formed during ‘the making of’.
The phase of concept development, trial and error, sketching, building and rebuilding leads to new discoveries and cross-overs. The sooner these findings are shared with others, the better the chances of success. Valuable networks can grow from the early stages of the design process, boosting the potential of a single concept.
LINKING PROCESS showcases this potential and focuses on the route to the final piece. This revealing exhibition displays not only the end result, but also the underlying ‘invisible’ design steps of 60 graduates, forging new links between their work and the world.
