Description

Myth has been used throughout history as a tool of interpretation and understanding, a gathering of shared experiences, such as historical or religious events, nature and natural phenomena. Often spoken through personification creating behavioral models and as a moral compass.

Vague understandings of emerging technological concepts and how they work, create fertile soil for the conception of myths.

The Oracle’s Query is an exploration of our modern day technology with the tool kit of mythology, it offers an interpretation into the vast and ever changing landscape of technology.

The Cloud becomes a metaphysical data-center in the heavens, meme cats and self-aware robots roam the countryside, where the sky is darken by flocks of drones who loom over vast data-mines, and in the dark corners of the AI’s imagination, the creatures of the Deep Dream emerge.

The tapestry depicts a modern-day technological cosmology, a logical medium for the interwoven history of the computer and the Jacquard loom, both were programmed with binary systems through/via punch-cards. Ada Lovelace predicted that these new machines (computers) could be used for “other things besides number”, referring to music, art and poetry drawing parallels between the pattern making looms and the computers

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.
