DEGREE PROJECT 2018
What is black design to me?
One thing that I believe has given me answers is that I am seeing my own practice evolve as a designer. That being said, I also learned that making things that evolve and use multiple mediums of creation is critical for design thinking. I believe that black design has to contain these three important elements: Story, Form, Extraction.
The quilts were a formal element in communicating a story, an experience and a life. It is about the sharing of information in a different unpredictable format.
The videos acted as an external element in this project. A visual that exposes process and takes more information and molds it into a form that is different from typical design methods like paper and ink. It is something that is ever evolving with moving imagery.
The interviews were something that provided the project with background and full context of which the quilts revolve within.
