Design Museum's Designs of the Year 2015 Exhibition (posted 18th June 2015)
I was looking over the Design Museum’s website which is rather an interesting visit with some intriguing links and articles on installations and displays, both current and future. One of the current exhibitions that they’re highlighting is the Designs of the Year 2015 Exhibition.
These vary with 76 nominees over six categories covering Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Graphics, Product and Transport. Of these the two projects that stood out, for me, are the following:
The Ocean Cleanup who develop technology to “extract, prevent and intercept plastic pollution”. Their goal is to “fuel the world’s fight against oceanic plastic pollution, by initiating the largest clean up in history.” They have created a passive system that they feel is able to remove half of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 10 years’ time.
The second project that I thought was rather interesting and also falls under the digital category is titled Shadowing ‘Come And Play In The Light’. Winner of Watershed’s 2014 Playable City Award this project gives memory to lights in a city, “enabling them to record and play back the shadows of those who passed underneath”. This specific project was run in Bristol for six weeks in eight clandestine locations.
Which projects stand out for you?
