Went to the London Design Biennale yesterday. Loved so much of it, especially this year’s theme of “Emotional States”. Loved Austria’s narrative-based, imaginative exhibit on a future of humans trying to cope with climate change; the UK’s entry on the use of photogrammetry as a tool for mapping landscape damage in war-torn Iraq; and Norway’s inclusivity-driven entry on AI games and interactive robots for schoolchildren. Pictured below are a bunch of really beautiful exhibits: Guatemala’s entry on a village with textile traditions and its efforts to strengthen itself economically; Australia’s colourful neon light rainbow exhibit to celebrate its recent legalisation of same-sex marriage; Saudi Arabia’s “sands of time”; Pakistan’s cotton textiles and clothing exhibit, lighting up a darkened space; Canada’s reflective mirror exhibit on its emotionally-named landscapes, which seem to reflect its citizens’ moods.
