Porcelain Evolution Lab – BA design project, UdK, Berlin

This project was dedicated to surface design as a haptic-functional and sensual-adeptable Interface between human and object.

The students approached the design process in three designated steps: supposedly inspiring experiments to get a touch and feel for the material were the starting point, followed and accompanied by a research and concept phase. These three methods eventually merged. Towards the end, of course, when the ideas were tangible, the students focused on parameters, proportions and practicability. The process was meant to be understood as an experimental evolution from analog through digital towards hybrid states. The aim was to develop surface structures that are known from other contexts and are transformed or sampled as such to cause irritation, so far only visually adeptable structures that reach a new quality in porcelain, structures that oscillate between grace and feature. The project is documented on this website.

 

We will show the results at Galerie erstererster, Pappelallee 69, 10437 Berlin
