029: Yes, I am not : Exhibition by Santi Lawrachawee

Yes, I am not Exhibition

July 5-31, 2008,
at Bangkok University Gallery, City Campus

Due to Santi Lawrachawee’s experiences and roles in the graphic
design realm, not only as a designer of the Practical Studio, or as
a part-time lecturer in the School of Fine and Applied Arts,
Bangkok University and Chulalongkorn University, but also as
a major player who has been continuously engaged in the
movements for Thailand’s field of arts and design,
it is time that he makes use of these art and design experiences
to convey his personal viewpoints in the first of his solo exhibition
“Yes, I am not.” This exhibition aims to present the puzzling circle
of globalized people’s consumption of information in their daily
lives, starting from the consumption process, embellishment,
synthesis, acceptance/opposition, and truth seeking. It seems like
asking the question, “What do we ultimately acquire from living in
the ocean of information that crazily strikes at us?”
This is conveyed by cutting newspapers to form more than
1000 lumps of paper bolds in a letter shape, which are exhibited
as a paper installation.

I find his work very conceptual but something inspires me and my project, in terms of how people see things and perceive them everyday. And it’s interesting to see this kind of work from Thai designer.

019: 1+1=3

Now I’m looking at different typographic installation because I don’t think I can work with sensory, it’s too hard and it’s not the thing I’m passionate about. So I found this amazing installation which is quite impressive. I’ll post more next time 🙂

Yatzer’s project:

1+1=3 A Meeting Between Two Creates Something New

This year, the final-year students in Product Design at Beckmans College of Design have created an alternative meeting place in Greenhouse at the Stockholm Furniture Fair.

The students have created a space to inspire informal gatherings of people, in the same way as you would meet spontaneously about town – sitting at the edge of a monument, on a front porch or a flight of stairs. The furniture in the showcase are based on indivdual briefs to create a specific type of furniture. In contrast to what is usually the case in Greenhouse, where many prototypes are for view only, the students have encouraged the visitors to interact with the furniture and the space. As a a bonus this year, the third-year students have collaborated with the second-year Advertising and Graphic Design students in creating a catalogue and a film.

011 : I ♥ typeworkshop.com

This is very good site that includes typography workshops and experiments with types. I found it very interesting to see people around the world do something like this. Most of the works also give me idea of typography installation that I wish to experiment and develop further more!
