Part of the Project
Curated by Design Indaba, antenna will gather some of the world’s most cutting-edge graduates in one place, Eindhoven, on 22 October. Following the success of the inaugural conference last year, we’ve decided to take it a step further.
While 20 student designers take to the stage to unpack their future-proofing ideas, an exhibition will be held in tandem at the Veemgebouw, Strijp S Eindhoven during Dutch Design Week between 20 and 28 October 2018.
Here are three of the talents who will exhibit their work alongside a few of antenna 2018’s speakers. Like the conference, the aim of the exhibition is to present projects that change the world of tomorrow.
Prajne: A tribute to ancient artefacts and the handmade
Created by Sneha Suresh of the Srishti Institute of Art in India, ‘Prajne: A tribute to ancient artefacts and the handmade’ preserves and pays tribute to forgotten artefacts and the handmade while celebrating the old.
Through this body of work, Suresh, a visual communications student gives new life to ancient artefacts and the narratives associated with them.
From Nowhere, With Love
Olga Zelenska from the School of Form in Ukraine will exhibit a project called From Nowhere, With Love. The project is comprised of a series of postcards, each containing a plant seed.
Using traditional papercraft methods, Zelenska created biodegradable postcards. One can take them on a journey, settle down in a new location and put them in the ground to give life to plants brought from one’s home country. The project asks: “Will the closeness of familiar nature help support the emotional relationship with the motherland?”
Designed by Alexandros Skouras from University Of Illinois at Chicago School Of Design, Xeniteia, Or A Temporary Displacement revolves around the notion of Xeniteia, a Greek word
meaning ‘to be away from home on foreign lands.’
It makes public a collection of private archives in an attempt to combine questions about immigration with forms of documentation and performance, inviting the viewer to connect with the other through an archival experience.
