Collaborative design

The Art Of Conversation: London—Berlin. Trailer / Half way teaser from The Art of Conversation: on Vimeo.

What do you get when you add 20 young and established designers playing a visual game Chinese Whispers over skype? Awesomeness, that’s what. The Art of Conversation will exhibit the results of ten designers from London and ten from Berlin, who have been asked to play over the course of 90 days, each being involved in one stage of the chain.  Each participant is presented with a work/idea from the previous participant in the chain via a Skype chat. They then have 3 days to interpret it and forward their results to the next participant. Their response can take any form; from sculpture to performance, photograph to text. The exhibition aims to showcase the designers’ talents and efforts as a result of collaboration. Can’t wait for the exhibition – opening 11th May in London.
