Description

’Polarized portraits’ uses polarized filters to highlight pieces of disposable plastic where the beauty of the optical effects stands in contrast to the environmental consequences of plastic waste.

Every year our earth’s oceans ends up with 8 million metric tons of plastic. Polarized Portraits mimics the function of polarized light microscopy to create an imaginative x-ray of planet earth.

’Polarized Portraits’ started out as a collaboration between designer Kajsa Willner and material scientist Dmytro Orlov from Lunds University.

Willners’ research led to the creation of large-scale reconstructions of polarized light microscopy, revealing the inherent stress and birefringence in the disposable plastic under examination, creating colorful material portraits.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
