Featured in David’s latest project, ALL OF THE ABOVE currently on show at The Future Perfect in New York.
ALL OF THE ABOVE: is a highly connected group of objects with a common genealogy and a shared sense of place – it’s the play with materiality and context that has become the logotype of David Taylor’s work.
“When an old-school glazing company moved out of their space in my neighborhood and dumped a load aluminium scrap into a container next to my workshop it was like a gift from above…”
“There were piles of junk in the container but for me the aluminium pipes and profiles where the most interesting, some were pretty scratched up while others still had protective film wrapped round them. The guys who made the windows had retired so suddenly they had lots of material but nobody who knows how to use it…”
Swiss creative team Drzach & Suchy designed a series of 3D-printed grates that reflect light from the sun onto the bottom of a pool, revealing words written in their shadow.
Looking at the grates on their own, the words are hidden within the weave of the metal. But when they place these coil sheets on the surface of the water the sunlight shines through the mesh, projecting the letters on the other side.
This is the weblog of UK based digital creative IAIN CLARIDGE serving as a repository for random morsels of ocular delight, news, views, obsessions & expressions, for your inspiration & delectation.
Good design means not leaving traces of the designer and not overworking the design. If you overdo the design it will touch the beholder’s consciousness. I think that when people and things are within the boundaries of consciousness they are at their farthest from heaven. — Naoto Fukasawa
