Practise Session 01
Introducing the first of our monthly salon series where we take a closer look at design-related topics and culture. This is an opportunity for the community to gather in our space, share design discourse and have a good time.
For our first installment, we will take a look at the ‘Figures of Speech’ book design by OKRM and review the works of Virgil Abloh.
Designer Alex Kirsch led us on an exploration of how we’ve transitioned from a currency system that consisted of objects with inherent value to a currency system of symbolic value.
What does that mean in today's world for us?
Carley + AriannaCarley and Arianna (of Zapah Lab) conducted a free walk to investigate the sensory experience of a high-traffic highway - on foot. This walk took participants above and around a GA state highway through tunnels, overgrown landscapes, abandoned bridges, and train tracks.
This presentation showcased their findings and participant reflections, which influenced a report that was at an academic experiential design conference in January 2020.
