YEAR: EXPECTED 2023
Pop Up Repair Shop / Unlearning Studies is a two-part design-as-social-practice / design charrette combined into one installation piece. Unlearning Studies is the result of a design charrette where we collected broken, discarded furniture and homegoods, and reconstructed them into new designed objects. Going into the project, we wanted to create a dialogue about inclusion within the design field, questioning who and what was included in the category. By working intuitively and limiting our material palette, we wanted to rethink the western design ideals that we had absorbed as a part of our design education.
Unlearning Studies was exhibited at Never Normal, curated by Form&Seek at Wasserman Projects from September to December 2020.
