The latest exhibition at the National Design Centre, titled Design Superposition, features 10 local and international creatives exploring the schizophrenic nature of design through the introspection of their own unique practices, in fields like illustration, architecture with fengshui principles, industrial design, science and technology, fashion, digital media, visual art, and nature.
Viewers are encouraged to take this exploration into their own hands and interact with the exhibits in the hopes that they may make their own evaluations about what design means to them.
"At its core, Design Superposition is about the production of design culture and industry, and a reflection of whether design is valuable or not," curator Yeo Ker Siang explains.
The exhibition is organised by the DesignSingapore Associates Network (DAN). Formed by the DesignSingapore Scholarship recipients in 2017, DAN is a platform for the design community in and outside Singapore to engage in design conversations on critical issues. Since its inception, DAN has been active in developing community-focused projects and events, ranging from talks, panel discussions and exhibitions at the National Design Centre.
“Design Superposition is about using design to look at design and to contemplate its value and purpose for the society. Beyond exploring the meaning of design, this showcase is a wonderful opportunity for our next generation of design leaders to collaborate, express their creative talent and push boundaries,” says Emily Ong, Deputy Executive Director, DesignSingapore Council.
Exhibition runs until 10 April 2022
