Design Academy’s Joseph Grima and Martina Muzi show a different perspective on design and technology.
Products that have been put together from existing electronic components. Is that design too? The exposition Born at Night at Kazerne will take you along the world’s biggest electronics market in Shenzhen, China. It zooms in on a network of factories, products, assembly lines, components and people. Here, innovation means an apparent seamless integration of tactics and processes, like the systematic reuse of electronics and the possibility to product small amounts ‘on demand’. During the day the focus lies on sales, at night the products that put the Western way of thinking about design, innovation and individual authorship up for discussion come to live.
