An exciting new exhibition at the Design Museum invites leading designers to explore the future of memory in our fast developing digital age. Organised in conjunction with Swarovski, the fifteen designers included in the exhibition have used the medium of crystal to produce unique artworks, pushing the boundaries of how the material can be used as a creative ingredient.
‘Digital Crystal: Swarovski at the Design Museum questions our relationship with the changing world. It seems all too easy to lose connection with the tangible and the real, as we move ever faster through a digital age where memory and the personal possessions we once held so highly are now online, or gone in an instant.’ Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum
Our team were thrilled to frame work by Philippe Malouin Studio for display in this exhibition. Entitled ‘Blur’, the artwork spins a Swarovski crystal at speed, ‘extracting a prism of light to create a painting in a colourful spectrum’. The resulting pictures are temporary and fluctuate depending upon the speed at which the crystals are spun.
This collection will be on show until 13th January 2013 and is sure to be popular with fans of innovative design and sparkling crystals alike!
