Alt. material presents Instagram exhibition featuring 22 Australian designers
Following the cancelled alt.material exhibition ‘ductility’ earlier this year and as a response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Studio Edwards is launching alt.material 4 with the aim to bring people together during these difficult and uncertain times.
An effort to make ‘design thinking’ relevant and essential. Promoting how design might participate in our new lives. Some of us are fortunate to have adequate living spaces to work from home. Others are not so lucky.
Designers are invited to respond to the theme of ‘ingenuity’. How can design bring us closer despite social distancing and our current physical separation? As designers how can we address the need for essential and urgent practical responses that solve real problems? How can we begin to address wellbeing through reassurance and comfort?
Designers in lockdown
Leading Australian designers & creatives are invited to respond to the theme with limited means using readily available and workable materials. Emphasis is to be placed on the qualities of being clever, original and inventive. To design, develop and make an object of use from limited resources.
Currently LIVE with introductions of each designer happening currently.
Instagram auction will be live on 10th September.
