What happens when we combine familiar processes, materials, and tools in unfamiliar ways? The exhibition HACK THE PROCESS documents an experiment carried out by students of the School of Form in Warsaw. They were challenged to produce ceramic containers from liquid porcelain, while turning their back on a production process that has been used unchanged for 200 years. The process: industrial porcelain manufacture and manual work. The material: breakfast cereals, yeast, Vitamin C powder or hygroscopic granules. The tool: the KUKA robot. The result: Quite extraordinary!
Talk “New Design Education – School of Form”: Sat 17.9., 4pm
Turning study courses into adventures in which students, teachers, and free market players can learn from each other as equal partners is, quite literally, a formality at Warsaw School of Form. Here, the humanist consideration of contemporary challenges is the focus of the design education and students are trained to combine theory and practice as a means of designing for a better world. The teaching staff includes Polish and international researchers, practitioners, and designers, whose excellent business contacts enable them to organize internships and often even permanent jobs for the students. [Web] A talk about the School of Form and its philosophy.
