Field Essays workshop: Still Making Sense

Onomatopee 55.1: Cabinet Project Field Essays

Onomatopee & Atelier Sophie Krier present Field Essays, on the nature and dynamics of design processes. Field Essays explores the motives and the strategies of emergent design practices, and informs about their qualities. Field Essays makes its research accessible to the public through publications, exhibitions, lectures and workshops. Together, these outcomes map and remap an evolving design landscape. Field Essays connects characteristic processes with contemporary thought; because Field Essays follows the production of new work from close by, it functions both as trampoline and feedback.

Field Essays will inhabit the front spaces of Onomatopee from October 22 till 30. Graphic designers Andreas Tscholl and Felix Peter will present a visual supplement. A select group of students and alumni’s from different academies will work on an exhibition in progress: under the title Still Making Sense1,the DDW will be shadowed, interpreted and mimicked in real time by the students. How are ideas communicated? Which topics are addressed? What do you relate to and what not? What can the spectacle of the Dutch Design Week mean for your own work?
Costs of participation to the workshop: €30,00 pp
